Washington, May 29.— The depart- 
ment of state been Informed reli- 
ably that the Chinese government has 
issued a decree agreeing to pay an in- 
demr.ity of •{30.000,(X)0 taels, equivalent 
to about $337,00O,(X»O at the present rate 
of ex>:hange. It is known now that the 
whole subject of indemnity will W 
cloeed up before the end of the present 
month. If that is not done, and evacu- 
ation is not under way on a large 3?ale, 
then the' Chinese government must be 
apf-essed $1,000,000 each day after June 
1 next, to compensate the powers for 
the maintenance of their forces in 
China. Under this whip the Chinese 
government has been forced to yield. It 
is not known that the powers have 
ugi ted on form and extent of guarantee, 
but now that the amount of indemnity 

Is fixed, not much difficulty is expected 
on this score. 

The United States government has 
not taken part in the selection of a mil- 
itary commandant to succeed Field 
Marshal Count Von Waldersee in the 
supreme command. Having dispensed 
with our military fofre in China, the 
United States is not concerned In the 
pereonallty of the military chief. Our 
legation guard will not owe allegiance 
or obedience to any foreign commander, 
but will be answerable solely to the 
United States mlnistvr or charge. In 
the event of common peril, the several 
legation guards may unite for the com- 
mon defense, in which case they may 
select their own leader, as they did 
during the defense of the legationers 
last year.

Action By the 


Washington, May 29.— Secretary Root 
has received a cablegram from Gen. 
Wood at Havana, brielly confirming the 
press report of ttie adoption by a vote 
of 15 yeas to 14 nays of the report of the 
cammlttee on the relations with the 
United States, accepting in behalf of the 
convention the terms of the Piatt 
amendment. It is not possible at this 
moment to secure here even an abstract 
of the resolution adopted, it is under- 
stood that without undertaking materi- 
ally to change the language of the Piatt 
amendment, the convention, by the 
adoption of reports of interviews with 
Secretary Root and otherwise, has placed 
upon the amendment Itself a construc- 
tion that will require very serious con- 

Secretary Root has been in daily com- 
munication by cable with Gen. Wood 
and Is acquainted with the proceedings 
of the delegates and negotiations which 
led up to yesterday's action. Gen. Wood, 
in turn, has acquainted the constitu- 
tional delegates with the secretary's 
views on tliie answer to their efforts to 
place a construction upon the Piatt 
amendment. Hence the weight of opin- 
ion inclines to the belief that even as it 
stands, the convention's action yesterday 
will not be disapproved from Washing- 
ton. It is suggested by the ofTicials that 
there is no occasion at present for the 
Washington government to take action 
on this matter either by accepting or 
rejecting the convention's work. 

Havana, May 29.— The Cuban consti- 
tutional convention will not hold furthei 
sessions until after the municipal elec- 
tims. President Capote visited Gover- 
nt)r General Wood today to talk over tlip 
proposed election law, which will be ths 
next work of ttie convention. The gen- 
eral Intimated that the Ignited States 
would ask that some changes be made 
in the constitution. 

i:i Mundo says: "By the vote of yes- 
tenlay Cuba's independence and nation- 
ality were made subject to the United 
States. In future we shall be only a 
name on the map of the world."

Col. Mirhler had been ill for some time 
from Bright's disease. Two months ago 
he was compelled to take to his bed. 
About noon yesterday he became un- 
conscious and remained in that state uo

Lieut. G-n. Miles was greatly attached 
to the offlcer and was with him daily 
during his illness. Last- night the gen- 
eral remained at the bedside of the 
dying man until a late hour. Mrs 
Michler and her mother were at the 
bedside when the end came. Gen. Miles

A Freight Boat Blown Up

Two Killed and Much Pro= 
perty Damaged. 

Eooneville, Mo., May 29.— By the ex- 
plosion of 1000 detonating caps, which 
set off 2100 pour.r..s of dynamite and 100 
kegs of powder, the fourteen-ton freight 
boat Laurine, plying between this city 
and Rocheport, on the Missouri river, 
was blown to pieces last night. Con- 
siderable damage was done to property 
for a mile around. Two laborers, who 
were aboard the boat, are missing. They

The Laurine was the property of the 
Rocheport Ferry and Packet company, 
and was about ready to leave her dock 
with a cargo of explosives, for use in 
building a railroad below town, when 
the accident occuiTed. 

The boat was propelled by a gasoline 
engine. When a match was applied to 
the generator the gasoline took fire. 

Capt. Ferris and the crew immediately 
vacated and warned all persons nearby. 
The fire spread rapidly to the supi)ly 
tanks of gasoline, and a second explo- 
sion occurred. This evidently set off 
the explosives on board, and with a re- 
port that was heard mile« away the 
boat was blown to atoms. The ferry- 
boat Joseph L. Stephens, lying 500 yards 
above, was considerably damaged, the 
woodworwk of the upper deck and pilot 
house being torn away. Those abo^ird 
the ferry escaped. 

Three residences, belonging to Joseph 
Sherer, Mrs. Sallie H. Johneon and 
Charles Dunkle, about 600 yards from 
the disaster, were wrecked. 

Fifteen plate glass windows In bu."!- 
ness houses on Main street, half a mil© 
away, were broken and nearly all of the 
windows and gla«s doors for a mile 
surrounding the accident were smashed 
by the concussion.

English Praise of American 
Rule In Havana. 

New York. May 29. — A dispatch to the 
Tribune from London says: The Post 
draws the attention of Englishmen to 
the annual report of the military gover- 
nor of Havana, and remark.e on the sur- 
prising measlr-? of huccess that has beer, 
attained by the Ameri.^an admfiiistra- 
tlon In a M ort time. The cxperjenre of 
Havana during the fir.n year and a i a.lf 
of American supervision proves, snys 
the post, that a government under the 
authority of an American executive 
would be incomparably better than 
Snaln had been able to give, and than 
I anything that the Cubms could crc.ite 
for themselves.

King Edward Gives Lord Milner a "Dine and Sleep 
Invitation Which Enables Him to Decline 
Other Invitations. 

New York, May 29.— A dispatch to the 
Tribune from London savs: 

The king has emphasized a unique dis- 
tinction In his welcome to Lord Milner 
by giving to him a "dine and sleep" In- 
vitation at Windsor. Lord Milner, after 
being Included in the royal dinner party, 
has been put in a position for gracefully 
declining Invitations to dinners which 
are offered to. liim from every part of the 
United Kingdom. 

The king and Mr. Chamberlain be- 
tween them have silenced any out'^ry 
which might have been raised on the 
continent against public neglect of dis- 
tinguished public servants. 

In the political clubs various stories 

are current to account for the fact that 
Sir Henry Fowler alone of the Liberal 
leaders was present at Mr. Chamber- 
lain's luncheon to Lord Milner. It ap- 
pears that some of the most orominent 
imperialist Itadicals, who owed their 
success at the general election to their 
support of the war in South Africa, were 
soundel as lo whether tney would accept 
invitations to the luncheon. Sir Henry 
Campbell-Bannerman. on hearing what 
was going on, for once in a way acted 
with decision. He declared that he would 
resign the opposition's leadership it 
these Invitations were accepted, hlS 
ground of objection being that the pres- 
ence of the Radical leaders at the prc- 
oeedlngs would commit the Liberals to 
approval of tfie government's policy. 


Colonial System Made Possible By Court's Decision 

May Lead Americans as Far as 

England Has Gone. 

London, May 29.— "The world at 
large stands to gain something by this 
momentous decision by which congress 
may devise for the dependencies a 
form of government outside the Amer- 
ican constitution," says the Westmin- 
eter Gazette today, discussing the 
United States supreme court's judg- 
ment. "Without the decision,"' con- 
tinues the Gazette, "the United States 
government would have been unable 
to adopt a more liberal trade policy 
outside of America than within without 
disarranging the whole of their con- 
tinental fiscal system. The relation of 
America to Europe and the world is 
profoundly modified by the new de- 
parture. Colonies means a navy, a navy 
means naval bases and coaling stations 
and naval bases are insecure unless 
backed up by the possession of a 'hin- 
terla«d.' This is the logic of imperial- 


President Pleased Over 

Acceptance of Piatt 


Fort Wayne, Ind.. May 2?.— The presi- 
dential train reached Foit Wayne on 
schedule time at 8 a. m. today. 

Mrs. McKinley had a comfortable 
night and looked forward with pleasure 
to seeing her relatives at Canton this 

President McKinley and cabinet mem- 
bere are much gratilled at the action of 
the Cuban constitutional convention in 
accepting the Piatt amendment. Cuba's 
acceptance of our terms, however, will 
not change her status for the present, 
^he n:u«t hold an election and establjsn 
a government, and congress eventually 
will be allowed to take the fmal action 
which uill release her from the military 
control of the United States. 

There was a big crowd at the station 
In this city. The president appeared in 
the rear platform and, after acknovvi- 
edglr.g the greetings, descended to the 
lower step of his car and held an im- 
v.romptu reception. A line was formed 
and he shook hands with several hun- 
drnd people. 

After a stop of fifteen mmutes the 
train proceeded eastward, the next stop 
being at Van Wert. Ohio. 

"ailure of loan. 

St Petersburg. May 29.— News has been

blamed for the failure of the loan. 

ism and It may lead the Americans aa 
far as it has led us. Moreover, by step- 
ping outside their continent the Amer- 
ican.s undoubtedly weaken the force 
of the Monroe doctrine. There is a cer- 
tain reciprocity in the present arrange- 
ments to conciliate Europeans to their 
exclusion from South America, but If 
the United States plunges Into wider- 
world politics equipped with a strong 
navy and an American canal, enabling 
It to concentrate on either ocean, she 
ca hardly claim to compete on the prin- 
ciple which limits liability while putting 
no limit on her expansion. The en- 
trance of the United States on the 
scene as a world power Is already re- 
garded as a highly disturbing factor by 
the European chancellories. The new 
departure makes it more Important than 
ever before for the British and the 
Americans, by all possible means, to 
keep on good terms with each other 
and settle by friendly negotiation all 
outstanding differences."

Negotiations For Extend-

Negotiations are under way between 
certain city officers, and street railway 
ofHcial^. for the extension of tha West 
Third street line from its prese* termin- 
us at avenue west to the new 
Kalrmount Park at West Duluth. 

Tids matter was taken up by Alderman 
Swensoa .some months ago. ana Mr. Swen- 
son's enemies were unkind enough to say 
that It wj'i for pollticaJ nurpos.j only. 
Such doeh not prove to be the case, ^s^ liie 
Ei>fhih ward alderman has been quietly 
pushliit; ids s<!herae. 

So far as the negotiations have been 
strictly private, but it is understaad that 
Alderm»n Sw«'nson has shown the street 
car company that there is a aooulation 
of SS!* tu bo reached by the prOfwsed 
exten.sioii and that the line could be made 
to pay. 

The new West Dnluth park promises to 
be very i»opuIar this summer and it Is 
reported that If the str.'et car line Is ex- 
tende<l there will bo several pla:;«3 of 
amuserant in operation close to the park.

First Street Owners Cir- 
culating Petition For 

President C. G. Goodrich of the Du- 
luth-flupertor Traction company ar- 
rived in the city this morning: to look 
over the situation with reference to the 
hill top fire yesterday morning and to 
confer with the city officials at W«st 
Superi.^r regarding the traction com- 
pany's proposed improvements in that 
city. Mr. Goodrieh expects Thomas 
Lowry in the city today or tomorrow, 
and he will also be present at the Wast 
Superior conference. Mr. Lowry has 
been in the East for several days. 

With reference to the burning of the 
Pavilion and the power house at the 
top of the incline, Mr. Goodrich says 
that the company's property on the top 
of the hill Is a t.>tal wreck, machinery 
and all. and the loss will be ver^- heavy. 
Mr. Goodrich said thi.x morning that he 
had not yet had an oplMirtuniiy-to con- 
fer with Mr. MenJ. nhall. the local di- 
rector, regarding the situation, and did 
not wish to make any statements as to 
what the traction lompany will do un- 
til he had. He does, however, confirm 
Mr. Mendenhdll's assertion that rhe 
traction company will not rebuild the 
Pavilion; in fa.n will not attempt an- 
other placJB of amusement at the hill 
top. The Company's engineers will look 
over the condition of the incline railway 
and the ruins at the and make rec- 
ommendations i.* to what is best to be under the cireumstancea. bu^ Mr. 
Gc/odrich said he was not in a position 
yet to say just what kind of service will 
be inaugurated on the road. He says 
that the ofliclal.'* of the company realize 
that the people living at Duluth Heights 
have been plaeed in a bad way by the 
fire, and undouht.dly something will l-e 
done aa soon as p.issible t.r alleviate 
their troubles in getting back and 

Although Mr. Goodilch does not wi.'h 
to talk abiut the transportation facili- 
ties that might be considered to replace 
those destroyed by the fire, it is reported 
that It Is likely that a counter-weight 
proposition, such as the Lowry interests 
are using In connection with incline 
railways at the Twin Cities may be 
adopted here. The chances are that the 
tiaction company will not feel like going 
to the expense of building and equipping 
another expensive power plant at the t jp 
of the hill, and the scheme suggested Is 
much cheaper tb' oj eratfi. The weights 
would run under the steel structure 
bearing the cars, and the cars them- 
selves could be equinpe.l with dummy 
engines to haul them up. Anything 
definite as to the company's plans will 
not be made nubile, h.iwever. until the 
engineers submit their report to the 
officials. . ^ ^ 

It cannot he learned whether the trac- 
ti )n company c.mtemplates any effort 
ailing the line of attractions on any of 
the other street car lines to take the 
place of the Pavilion, but by many who 
are conversant with the amusement 
nroposltlon on street car lilies 
In this city and other cities 
of the Northwest. It is not cm- 
sldered very probable that the com- 
pany will make another attempt in this 

direction. . . „ i 

Regarding the attitude of the Superior 
authorities toward the street railway 
improvements in that city, Mr. Goodrich 
oavs that he will be better able to ta.k 
about it after he has had a talk with th'> 
city officials and finds out what has 
caused them to antag )nize every m.A-e 
made toward improvement by the com- 
pany. Mr. Goodrich believes, however 
that everything will work out all right 
in the end. as soon as the city authorities 
and the street car company fully under- 
stand each <d»ier. ,.,...». *>,-. 
Mr Gonjrich reiterated that it Is the 
cimpany's to establLsh one of 
the host street railway systems In the 
V(.rthwest at the head of the lakes, and 
says that aside from the West Superior 
proposition, the imi)rovoments are being 
carried out in a way entirely satisfac- 
tory to the oflicials of the company. 

Women as Well as Men 

Ar& Made Miserable by 

Kidney Trouble. 

Kidney trouble preys upon the mind, dis- 
courages and lessens ambition; beauty, vig?i 
and cheerfulness soon 
disappear when the kid- 
neys are out of order 
or diseased. 

Kidney trouble has 
become so prevalent 
that it is not uncommon 
for a child to be bom 
afflicted with weak kid- 
neys. If the child urin- 
«__« - - ates too often, if the 

urine scalds the flesh or if, when the child 
reaches an age when it should be able to 
control the passage, it is yet afflicted with 
bed-wetting, depend upon it. the cause oi 
the difficulty is kidney trouble, and the first 
step should be towards the treatment of 
these Important organs. This unpleasant 
trouble is due to a diseased condition of the 
kidneys and bladder and not to a habit as 
most people suppose. 

Women as well as men are made mis- 
erable with kidney and bladder trouble, 
and both need the same great remedy. 
The mild and the immediate effect of 
Swamp-Root is soon realized. It is sold 
by druggists, in fifty- 
cent and one dollar 
sizes. You may have a 
sample bottle by mail 

free, also pamphlet tell- 

ing all about it, including many of the 
thousands of testimonial letters received 
from sufferers cured. In writing Dr. Kilmer 
& Co., Binghamton, N. Y., be sure and 
mention this paper.

Projserty owners on East First street 
have started a movement to mako it 
the finest residence street in the city. 
The plan is to narrow the street so as to 
give a gra.s!» plot between the sidewalk 
and curb In front of ea.'h house. Then. 
In addition to this, it is prop.:»sed to put 
in a combination gutter and curb of 
cement, at an estimated cost of $11,244. 

The district to be improved is between 
.'^ixth avenue east and Twenty-flr^i 
avenue east. ITnder a recent ordinance 
passed by the council, only granilithic 
an.l cement walks can be put down in 
this district. 

This wonld give Kast First street 
property a unlf.irm frontage for fifteen 
blocks, and it is claimed that the im- 
provement would greatly Increase the 
value of residence property on that 

Petitions for the pr.iixiped Improve- 
ment are being circulated today, and 
the movement Is backed by several of 
the large<sl property owners on the 

First street is sixty-six feet wide, and 
while It h»is not been delinltely decided 
Just how much the street would lie nar- 
rowed f.>r the proposed improvement. It 
is said that the change would not take 
a great deal off the width of the street.

Smithereen Sale. 

Something new. F. D. Day & Co. are 
going to have a smithereen sale. In 
their art room they have got together 
goods on which they have knocked 
prices to smithereens. Miss this sale 
and you are lost. 

The jury calendar of the May term of 
district court ended in a blaze of glory 
this morning. The jurors of the term 
have the uncommon record of not having 
a single disagreement, every jury trial 
resulting in a verdict. 

Ttie nearest approach to spoiling this 
record was in the highly important case 
of Peter McHardy, a resident of Hlb- 
bing. who owns some houses, against J. 
M. Klinker, who rented one of them 
some time ago. For eighteen long and 
weary hours eleven stubborn and stlfC- 
necked jurors held out against the rest 
of the jury, refusing to give or take a 
r.oint. So determined were the eleven 
that they gained their point in the end. 
and the verdict went according to their 
dictation, but not, it may be supposed, 
without strenuous efforts on the part o! 
the rest of the jury to reach an agree- 
ment according m his— the rest of the 
jury's— view of the matter. 

The eleven strong-wllkd and stubborn 
jurors stood for the defendant, who rep- 
resented the outraged class of renters of 
houses, while the rest of the jury cast 
one vote in favor of the oppres.sor. the 
plaintiff, who represented the landlord 
cla««s The jury stood practically the 
same fr.)m the first, for shortly after It 
went out at Si-IO o'clock yesterday after- 
noon the first ballot stood 11 to 1 for 
the defendant. It s^tayed that way all 
during the night, and the meinbers of 
the jury wrestled with the mighty ques- 
tion before them iminfully. solemnly 
and fervidly. At last. over<-ome by tne 
annoying firmness of the eleven, the 
patient and long-suffering rest of toe- 
jury changed his vote and an agreement 
was reached. This was not, according to 
rumor without some consolation to the 
rest of the jury, for it ^v•hist>el•ed 
that there was a cfimpromise by which 
the eleven were compelled to recede 
slightly from their demands. whi(>h will 
undoubtedly be considered a just punish- 
ment for their stubbornness. ^ , , , 
The verdict awarded the defendant, 
Mr Klinker. damages in the sum of $9. 
This the jurv was very specific m ex- 
plaitiing. meant that he was to have 
that much not, and that the plaintiff 
w'as to take nothing for the $16.80 for 
rent that he sued for. 

Mr. Klinker. according to the evi- 
dence, is princii-al of the schools at Hib- 
bing and he rented a house from Mc- 
Hardv f'T $1« por month. McHardy 
promising to make certain repairs that 
would put the house in suitable condi- 
tion for the occupancy of an educator. 
This work was not done, ond Mr. Klin- 
ker became indignant and refused to 
pay a balance of rent claimed to be da?. 
Mc Hardy brought suit for the rent. 
516 80 and Klinker put in a counter 
claim for $30. It was begun in the jii?- 
tire court at Hibblng. On the first trial 
there was a disagreement, and on the 
second trial McHardy got a verdict. 

This was n.^t at all satisfactory to the 
defendant, Mr. Klinker, .so he appealed 
to the district court, and the ca.<»e was 
then taken up yesterday. It was as 
hard-fought an action as the court has 
heard this term, and, as stated above, 
it came the nearest to causing a dis- 
agreement of the jury. Miller & Adams 
are the attorneys who thus turned Mr. 
K linker's defeat in the justice court of 
Hibblng into a victory in the district 
court at Duluth. , ^ 

The three divisions of district court 
are all trying court cases. In Judge 
Cant's court at noon the mandamus 
ease of C. J. Frederickson against City 
Treasurer Voss was on trial. Frederick- 
son has a judgment against the city for 
work on the pumphoU(?e at L/akewood. 
and he wanted the city treasurer to nay 
It "The city treasurer claimed that 
under the charter he could not do so. 
and that the judgment would have to 
go through the usual course of claims 
against the city. So Fredericks.^, 
through John Jenswold. Jr., instituted 
proceedings to have the court determine 
the issue.

Resolutions, prepared by delegate,-, 
were passed up to the commander, who 
read them aloud before pas.sing thein, 
back to the committee on lesoluLion.s. 
Among them was one asking that con- 
gress shall be memorialized to erect at

of "No." The resolution was passed 
back to the committee.

orial reported resources of $228,710. Ap- 
l>ended to the rep.irt was a r. 'solution 
that the members of the ommittee be 
ordeied to meet within ninety days in 
Richmond, Va., to make final arrange- 
ments for the laying of the cornerstone 
of the battle abbey which is to be the 
great Confederate memorial. The re- 
port and the resolution were adopted. 

Resolutions were adopted asking con- 
gress to make sufficient appropriation 
for the care of Confederate dead in the 
cemeteries in the north, and thanking 
congress and the president for the pass- 
age of an appropriation act for the re- 
interment of Confederate dead interred 
in the national cemetery at Washing- 

Gen. A. P. Stewart offere^l a resolu- 
tion asking that every member of the 
United Confederate veterans give $1 
for the purpose of erecting a suitable 
memorial to the women of the South. 
The motion was carried amid much ap- 
lause. Gen. Stewart was made trea.surer 
of the fund and dollars poured in upon 
him. After this the report of the .Jeffer- 
son Davis Memorial association vva.<»

Case Is Likely to Occupy 

Two or Three 


Boston, May 29.— The jury trial of the 
suit of Mrs. Josephine A. Woodbury, 
of this city, claiming $IC0,000 damages 
from Mrs. Mary Baker G. Eddy, of Con- 
cord, N. H., founder of the Christian 
Scientists' sect, for libel, was begun in 
the Suffolk county superior court here 
today, and, according to the statement 
of the defendant's counsel, it is likely 
to consume? tlie greater portion of three 
weeks. The suit was brought by Mrs. 
Doodbury on the ground that two years 
ago Mrs. Eddy, in a message to the 
First Christian Science church here, 
which was read four times and after- 
ward published in a local paper, had in 
mind Mrs. Woodbury when she used 
the words "The doom of Babylonish 
woman referred to in the Book of Reve- 
lations i.s being fulfilled." 

Previous to this Mrs. Woodbury had 
beerr excommunicated by the church. 

In her answer, Mrs. Eddy admits that 
the particular address was delivered on 
the days and at the times named in the 
declaration of the plaintiff, but de- 
clares that neither Mrs. Woodbury nor 
any other human being was meant by 
the term "Babylonish woman," tha 
phrase being used simply to describe a 
type of sin. 

Mrs. Woodl)ury was present in court 
today, but Mrs. VAdy would not appear, 
her deposition having been taken for 
introduction in the case as evidence. 

The court room was crowded with 
spectators when the case was called, 
while several bundled men and women 
clamored in vain for admission. Be- 
fore the selection of a jury, Mr. Pea- 
body, counsel for Mrs. Woodbury, of- 
fered an affidavit bearing on the case, 
which he claimed was made necessary 
through the absence of Judge Hanna, 
a prominent member of the Mother 
church, w ho. he said, caused the mess- 
age of Mrs. Eddy to be published in the 
local papers. The court took the affi- 
davit with the understanding that it 
should be admitted later in the case, 
should the evidence warrant it. 

A jury was theri empanelled and the 
plaintiffs declaration read.

Death and Burial 

at Sea. 

New York, May 29,— Hurrying home- 
ward U< . .-• ape the hostile climate of 
Brazil. Mirf. Harriet (Jonsalus, of Lon- 
don, Ohio, was on the high seas with- 
out adult kindrwl or even a physician 
near when a child was born to her. A 
passenger on the Lampert & Holt 
eteamer Milton. Mrs. Gonsalus had only 
the aid of a grizzled sea captain as 
physician and of the governt-ss of her 
four children as nurse. The child di,d. 
and she followed it. and the two were 
J)uried together at sea- 

As the simpU" words of the ship s log 
tell the mother and child were given 
ocean burial May 15 in latitude N.:i 
north and longitude 54.12 west. When 
the Milton came into New York, ouo 
of the first to board hfi- was Mr. 
Mitchell, a brother of Mrs. Gonsalus 
and a custom apprals&r, expectant of 
meeting his sister. He sprang eagerly 
forward until he saw her four children 
huddled forlornly in the care of their Then his face whitened. 
With tears in his eyes he heard the 
ttory of the deaths. 

Mrs. f;.>ni>alua was 36 years old. Her 
hushanil wa.s appointed consul at Per- 
nanibuto from Ohio but a month or so 
ago. His family, consisting of the wife 
atid four children, found the climate 
unhealthy, and it was decided they 
■hould retui-n on the Milton. 

Mrs. Oonsa.lus, her children, and the 
governesa. Miss Mary Riddle, were^tha 
only passengers on the ship. Mr. Gon- 
salus bade them Godspeed at the dock 
May 9, and Mrs. Gonsalus cheerily 
called out to him from the deck that 
Bhe would soon return to him. 

When the ship had been out only a 
day Mrs. Gonsalus l»e<'ame 111. although 
the weather was calru. Capt. Matthew- 
son, supposing she was troubled by the 
eea motion, gave her ordinary remedies 
and thought she would be up and about 
In a few hours. It was several days 
*>efor.? the captain learnetl the nature 
of her illness. The child was born to 
her on May 13. 

Mr.'t. Gonsalus bwame very feeble 
and soon realized that she was going 
to die. She asked that her little Irea- 
fiur*' bp given to her husband and some 
trinkets to her brother, Mr. Mitchell, at 
this port. ,. , ^ ^ 

Miss Riddle and the captain did what 
thev could for the sufferer. The gov- 
em*f"ss had all she could do to attend 
to the frightened little ones, for whom 
the heart of the stricken mother seemed 
to be bleeding. 

"Take care of ray hables, my poor 
■babies." she cried time and again in 
the hours before her death. 

Thf* i^nd came on the night of May IS. 
•The governess and the children were 
All about her l>ed when she died. 

On the afternoon of May 16 the two 
bodies were sewed In a weighted can- 
vas shroud. Mr. Roberts, the first of- 
ficer of the ship, read the burial ser- 
vice as they wore gently pushed over 
the side and the sack shot beneath the 
•waves. The children, sobbing bitterly. 
Ptiod beside the captain and the crying 
Koverness. and there was not a dry eye 
In the ship's company at that primi- 
tive funeral. 

Capt. Frederick Matthewson. of the 
Milton, with tears in his eyes, said: 

"This Is an awful blow to me. 1 have 
feeen a master twt'nty-nine years, but 
1 never had a woman die like that on a 
ship before."

"Just the same with me." said Ricard. 

Both men were now deeply interested 
in one another, and Kearsley asked Hi- 
card to describe his wife. 

"Why that is my wile," declared Kears- 

"O. .'The's my wife," declared Rlcard. 

"Well, how could she be your wife If 
she's mine?" 

Both men then went to Kearsley s house 
at "OS West Van Buren .>*treet. At sisht 
of Kearsley's wife Ricard shouted: 
"That's she: that's ray wife." 

Then the two men talked it over. lAter

The woman tooked at Ricard and replied. 
"No, he has beon dcid a month."

Inquest on Harvey Mor- 
ris, Shot By Sol 

Cass Lake, Minn., May 29.— (Special 
to The Herald.)— Sheriff George Hardy 
and Coroner Bailey h ive returned from 
Vermillion Brook, where they went on 
Saturday. In company with Deputy 
Sheriff Ed Chaml)erlaln. to hold an in- 
• luest over the remains of Harvey Mor- 
ris who was shot on Friday last by Sol 
Williams. The sheriff brought Wil- 
liams with him from Grand Hapids^nd 
lodged the prisoner in Jail here over 
night, taking him to Walker yesterday. 
The sheriff and his party arrived at 
Vermillion Brook at S o'clock Sunday 
evening. A jury was immediately em- 
pannele<l and the inquest over the re- 
mains of Morris was completed at 3 
o'clock Monday morning, the jury re- 
turning a verdict that Morris came to 
his death by shots fired from a ritle in 
the hands of Williams. 

There were only two witnesses who 
were present at the time the shooting 
occurred. They were Morris" wife and 
his daughter, Nancy, aged 12 years. The 
testimony of various witnesses called 
at the inquest showed that Williams 
had befriended the Morris family. in 
that he gave them house room at a 
time when they had no roof to cover 
their heads, and that after staying at 
his place several weeks they refused to 
remove from the premises and literally 
took possession of everything which 
Williams owned. The latter tried In 
many ways to induce them to procure 
other quarters, but they steadily re- 
fused to leave, and Williajns states thit 
they, on many occasions, ordered him 
to le.ive and threatened to kill him. 

The shooting, according to the ac- 
count given by Williams, occurred sub- 
stantiallv as has been related, he not 
making "use of his rifle until he was 
compelled to In order to save himself 
from being killed. Sheriff Hardy had 
with him the ritle with which Willi.tms 
did the shooting. It Is a 38-55 Win- 
chester. Three shots were fired at 
Morris, all of which took effect. One 
bullet entered his left side at the hip, 
glancing upward and coming out on the 
right side. Another went through his

The Serious Trick o! a Practi- 
cal Joker. 

Indianapolis, May 29.— The trick of a 
practical joker, who drugged a bowl of 
punch served at a meeting of the su- 
preme council of the "Order of X," a 
new social order, nearly caused the 
death of every one present. As it was, 
out of thirty-four members present, 
nineteen were prostrated for several 

The affair occurred a few nights ago. 
hut the facts have just become known. 
The order, which Is new. is largely so-

bowl of punch was a center of attrac- 
tion. The effects of the punch were not 
noticed uniH Roy C. Sturm, after read- 
ing a pav^er and starting for his seat, 
collapsed in the middle of the floor. 
Two or three other brothers started to 
pick him up, hut Ihey themselves like-

Others who rose found that their 
heads were swimming and their stom- 
achs griping with horrible nauseau. 
Eight lay unconscious on the floor at

1:15 o'clock last night by Moderator Mm- 
ton after having been In session for near- 
ly two weoks, during which time many 
matters of the ulmosi iniportajiee to the 
church were considered. Chief among was the question regarding the re- 
vision of tile confession ot faith. After 
a discussion ci>ntinuing nearly four days 
this mointntous subject waa referred to a 
special committee of iweniy-one membtirs 
who will make recommendations as to the 
manner In which the creed should be re- 
vl.sid and present them to the n -xt gon- 
er;U assembly wlvlch meets In New York. 

The colslng hours of the assembly was 
devoted to routine matters. The report 
of the committee on temperance urged 
ministers to call the attention »f con- 
greaanien In their distrists lo the neces- 
sity for the completion of legislation now 
uen<ling regarding the drink traffic In the 
Wands of the Pacific. The report also 
urgt^ the government to take eflr'?cctve 
action towards the suppre.ssion of the 
liquor trefflc in all of our new po.-^.-<e-s- 
slons. The committee on the Peoria plan 

of selecting standing committees ap- 
proved the system.

Railroad and Warehouse 

Commission Explains 

to Ore Roads. 

St. Paul, May 29.— The railroad and 
warehouse commission Tuesday served 
upon the ore-carrying roads of the 
state an amended order relative to the 
terms upon which a rehearing of the 
ore rate case will be granted. 

The order separates the question of 
reasonableness of rates from the ques- 
tion of the jurisdiction of the commis- 
sion. The commissi-m has decided to 
take up the latter subject for settlement 
first. The ore roads are ordered to 
show cause why they should not file 
with the commission the ore tariffs in 
effect over the various lines. The ore 
roads claim the rates are private and 
that the commission has no jurisdiction. 
The order will result in mandamus pro- 
ceeuings which will test the jurisdic- 
tion ot the commission in the whole 

An ofllcer of one of the ore roads said 
that the companies interested did not 
Intend to rai»e auy factious objections 
or to entangle the proceedings in any 
technical quibbles. He thought the 
question wouW bq ready for argument 
at the time set. namely July 9.

His Candidacy For Repub-

Chicago. May 2.<».— Senator Charles- W. 
Fairbanks, of Indiana, was formUly an^ 
uouncvHl yesterday as a candidate for 
president before the Republican natlonaJ

Peruna Creating a National Sensation in the Cure of 
Chronic Ailments of the Kidneys. 

Mr. John Vance, of Hartford City, Ind., 
saj^s: "My kidney trouble is much bette*. 
I have improved so much that everybody 
wants to know w^hat medicine I am using. 
I lecomraend Peruna to ever.vl>ody and 
s<jme have commenced to use it. The folks 
all say that if Dr. Hartman's medicine 
cures me it must be great." 

Mr. J. Braice, of Petroiea, Ontario, 
Canada, writes: ''Four years ago I 
had a severe attaclc of Bright's Dls- 
ease, which brought me so low the 
doctor said nothing more could be 
done for me. 1 began to talce Peruna 
and Manaiin, and in three months I 
was a well man, and have continued 
so ever since." 

At the appearance of the first s>-Tnptom 
of kldiioy trouble. Peruna should be 
taken. This remedy strikes at once the 
very root of the disease. It at once re- 
lieves the catarrhal kidneys of tho stag- 
nant blood, preventing the escaiHj of ser- 
um from the blcx)d. Peruna stimulates 
the kidneys to excrete from tho blood the 

a c curaulait- 
ing poison, 
and thus 
prevents the 
c o nvulsions 
which are 
sure to fol- 
low if the 
polsonw aj-e 
allowed to 
remain. It 
gives great 
vigor to the 
heart's ac- 
tion and di- 
gestive eys- 
tera, both of 
which are apt to fall rapidly in this dis- 

Peruna cures catarrh of the kidney* 
simply because it cures catarrh wher- 
ever located. 

If you do not derive prompt and satisfac- 
tory results from the u.9e of Peruna writ© 
at once to Dr. Ilartnian, giving a full 
statement of your case and he will be 
pleased to give you his valuable advice 

Address Dr. Hartman, Preslden-t of Tho

Cuban Constitutional Con° 

vention Accepts Piatt 


Havana, May 29.— The Platl amendment 
wa;s accepled by the Cuban consti4^ution- 
al conveiitlon yesterday by a vote of 15 
to 14. Tho actual vote was on accepting 
the majority report of the committee on 
relations which embodied the amendment 
with expJaiations of certain clauses. 

The radicals made a haid light at the 
last moment and Senors porluondo, 
Gtomest and Tamayo bitterly arraigned the 
conservatices. , 

Senor Tan.ayo was particularly vmdic- 
tlve and declared that everybody who 
voted in favor of tlie Piatt amendment 
was a ti-altor lo his country. The con- 
vention compelled him to retract tins 
statement. On several occasions person- 
al encounters seemetl imminent. 

Senor Gcniez spoke for more than an 
hour and his speech undoubtedly won 
over Senor Castro, Roba and Manuuley. 
He appealed to the patriotism ot del* 

Sates and rehearsed the long light for in- 
euendence denouncing as ixrjurers all 
who f.avorod the Piatt amendment on the 
ground that they had sworn to draw up 
a constitution for an independent repub- 

Several conservatives rose and asked 
Senor Gt mez to retract but he absolute- 
ly refused. ^. .

School Ma'ams Who May 
Marry In Philippines. 

Wa.shington. May 29.-There is a good 
deal of speculation as to the effect of the 
importation of several cargoe.-i of school 
ma'ams upon the matrimonial market in 
the rhillppinL*. It is not probable that 
any of the young women are gomg out 
there with the intention to getting mar- 
ried but It Is almost certain that the at- 
ractlve ones will have plenty of oppor- 
tunities to do so. No marriageaole girl 
ever went to China or Japan or iiny otner 
of the countries In the far Bast without 
receiving one or more proposals of mtir- 
riaue, which generally bcga.n about the 
second n.. nil- of their stay. The business 
communities of the foreign colonies are 
comi><:««ed chiefly of young men, English, 
Germans and Americans, who havo boon 
sent out by their fathers to learn the 
business or rejiresent mercantile or 
manufacturing lirnos. As a gf-neral thing. 
they arc fine fellows and make the best 
kind of husbands. 

Women of their own race and social 
nositlon are scare, and they herd "Ke a 
lot of stags at the clubs and them- 
selves playing polo, tennis and other 
sports There are. a few married one« 
whose homes are open to tlu-*n a con- 
stant illustration of the happiness which 
they might themselves enjoy. Hence 
when a good-looking and agreeable girl 
appears in the community, nearly every 
single man goes down on his knees to her 
at once. This will probably be the fate 
of many of the school nia'ams. aiid in ad- 
dition to the commercial community there 
are sev-^ral hundred young army officers 
in the Philippines, who must also be con- 
sidered. Most of them are single men. 

A Pleasant Journey. 

A representative of The Bee heard 
a well known Morrisvllle woman, who 
frequently visits a married daughter in 
New York, telling some friends one day 
this week of her first experience ridmg 
on the Empire State Express. 'I was 
coming Ttp from New York." she said, 
••and fhoSght I would try that famotis 
train I've heard so much about. VVell. 
.we rolled along smooth and easy and 
pretty eoon I noticed a lot of the men 
getting up and putting on their over- 
coits I thought all these men could 
not be getting cold for the car was very 
comfortable, and in just a rninute the 
tSman called out 'Albany!' I could 
hardly believe It: I would just as soon 
have expected to he in California so 
quickly. We left New York at half-past 
eight and were at Albany a little after 
eleven and at Utlca before one o clock. 
I changed to an accommodation .rain 
there and waa in Canastota a fevv 
minutes after two. My! it ^^•5";'f^'^lmo5»t 
like flying." Now whenever thia gx)d 
lady wants to visit New York she ,<oe3 
a good bit out of her way that she may 
travel by the New York Central. -From

If properly treated as soon as thia 
cough appears are easily cured. Cham-

wonderfully successful, and gained its 
wide reputation and extensive sale by

Engineer McGuire Victim 

of a Terrible 


A terrible accident occurred at High- 
land about 5 o'cloclt yesterday after- 
noon by which P. J. McGuire. an engi- 
neer on the Duluth & Iron Range road, 
received fatal injuries. 

Mr. McGuire's engine was pulling a 
long ore train. At the top (.f the hill near 
Highland he leaned far out of the caU 
window to examine the driving wheels. 
The train was going at a good rate of 
speed and the unfortunate engineer's 
head struck a stand pipe. 

The jaw was broken and the skull 
fractured. The fireman pulled the en- 
gineer's body back Into the cab and 
succeeded in stopping the train. 

The uncon.<?clous engineer was taken 
to the Two Harbors hospital, where he 
died at>out 9 o'clock last night. 

Mr. McOuire is well known in rail- 
road circles at the head of the lak.?s. He 
was about 45 years of age and leaves a 
wife and three children at Two Har- 
bors. His relatives live at Dixon, III. 
He Was one of the oldest engineers on 
the Duluth & Iron Range road in point 
of service. 


South Shore May Get Into 

It ia reported that the Soo and South 
?liore roads are figuring on direct con- 
nections between the head of the lake 
and Ashland, Wis. At the present time 

the Sjo road is building toward Su- 
perior, the ('(instruction crews working 
in Polk and Harron counties, Wis. The 
Halvor.son-Richards company, of Mlnne- 
a nulls, lias the contiact for a section of 
the new line and is building fr>m St. 
Croix Falls. Wi.s.. where it is employing 
a larg-* force of men. While the new line 
will not resvh the head of the lakes this 
year, it is .«fald to be certain that it Is its 
ultimate destination. It is believed that 
the S )o road will connect with the South 
.^"hore road a few mihs out of the city 
and .stiiil its trains in over tlie South 
.■ihore tracks. It i.<« exi>ected that t;ie Soo 
comp;iny will also make connection-^ 
V. ith ihe South .Sh«>re road near Ashland, 
hut run its own road into Ashland. This, 
it is said, will give the SoutLi Shore road 
direct connections with Ashland. 

The t^hicago & Northwestern road \s 

••.•■••o -ting a branch from Oile. in Eau 

iinty. Wis., t) Rice Lake, Wis. 

1 li. ( iiiipany will build forty miles of 

the ne>.' line thi.s year, and already has 

alioutJ *ur mlle.s of fhe roadbed graded. 

The Weyei hueusers are said to h.<ive 
taken an Int-rest in Cook's logging road 
in Wisconsin, and the entire road has 
been reballasted and heavy rails laid. 
From the amount of improvement done 
it is figured that the road will s"metime 
lie used other purposes than tHiat of 
hauling l"gs. and with the Soo road 
ui'ing into Ashl.ind. it is claimed that 
the Ashland end of the line will be the 
I \v. \*nfuieuser logging road, which has 
b d in connection with the South 

Si i id in getting logs t > the Weyer- 

h a. u.str mill at Lake Nebagamon.

Made a Study of His Food. 

It is not always that the user of food 
understands ab(»ut that food, but a 
rcntleinan in Cin.innati writing ab.»ut 
1 ;rai>e-Nuts expre.s.tes hinwelf perfectly. 
He says: "A business man devoting 
himself to hard mental labor, requires 
different food than a man doing mus- 
cular work. I became aware of a dull, 
heavy feeling in my head day by day 
which did an imtold damage to i.iy 
work. Verdict, intestinal indigestion; 
l)unlshment, a isevere diet list, leaving 
out starchy foods, sugar and fat. 

I'p to this time, with the most pre- 
cL'^e care in co'jking, the ordinary 
breakfast f.iod came to the tal)le a 
l-:i.-ity, starchy mas«. Added to that was 
sugar and more or les^ white !)read, 
which gave an excess of starchy f0(vd 
that could not be digested. This indi- 
gested mass passed into the Intestines, 
creating gas and and all of the 
Ing symptoms both of body and brain. 

I was put on (;rai)e-Nuts Foixl the 
reason that it is made of selected parts 
of wheat and barley, thoroughly cooked 
at the factory, giving to the body the 
starchy part of the food (which is neces- 
sary\ predige«!ted. that is. turned into 
dextr '.«e or gra|>e sugar. This furnished 
the sweet reeded, without the of 
cane sugar, and gave me the starchy 
principle of food already passed into the 
second C(mdltion. exactly in the same 
manner as a healthy body digests it. 

After eating Grape-Nuts for a short 
time. I found a most remarkat.ile im- 
provement in my health, and I also dis- 
covered the re.ison why the claim made 
on tlie package is true, that one pound 
of Grape-Nuts, which is perfectly ab- 
sorbed by the body, will afford more 
nutrition than ten pounds of meat, 
wheat or bread, imperfectly digested. I 
can assure anyone that a week or ten 
days' conscientious use of Grape-Nuts 
will prove far more convincing testi- 
nnuiy than any written words. I sub- 
scriiie my self a grateful consumer.

Shoot For the Possession 

of the Diamond 


Thirteen Eligible to Com- 

pete With Another 


Duluth Has Seven Men 

and Wants to 


Tomorrow afternoon the final contest 
for the possession of the handsome dia- 
mond njedal badge which has been open 
to competition for about three years for 
all shots who mlfitit wish to come to 
the head of the lakes and compete for it 
will l>e held. This shuot will settle the 
reimanent ovrier.sbii) of llie I i;ndsome 
trophy. Naturally there is much inter- 
est and excitement over fhe outcome of 
the contest. The Duluth men are anxious 
to see it stay here, and the outside men 
are equally anxi.ais to get it. 

There are today thirteen contestants 
who may enter the .-hoot. A shjot is 
being held this afternoon, and after that 
there may be fourteen, that is if a new 
man should win the badge. A. A. Far- 
rington won it yestei'd.i.v fcr the first 
time and thus go into the final shoot. 

The men who have won the badge and 
the number if times they have carried 
it off are as follows: 


J. W. Nelson, 9 times. 

T. J. Storey. 3 times. 

D. H. Day, " times. 

Warren Mendenhall. 1 time. 

A. B. T^iomas, 1 tine. 

A. W. Loud. 1 time. 

A. A. Farrin.'toa. 1 time. 

J. D. Finn. 7 times. 

Levi Fulton. 1 time. 

F. H. Mherns. 1 time. - 

D. H. Kennedy. 1 lime. 

Louis Eisenach, 1 time. 

Dr. H. W. Spratley, 1 time. 

Of the above there are three who may 
not be here to shoot. These are J. D. 
Finn. Bherns and Dr. tjnratley. Mr. 
Finn, wh> is one of oti-- best shots that 
ever won the badge, is not now a re.'-.i- 
dent of Superior, and it is not known 
whether he will come hi*re for the shoot 
or not. He has notj given any notice, 
but it is not expectM thnt he will, fir 
lie will be more inclined t^ drop in sud- 
denly and try to startU some of the 
shots out of their "sho iting clothes" by 
his sudden appearance. He is certain to 
be a formidable opoonent if he should 
appear. Dr. Spratley may also come, 
but it is not known whet'i-^r he will or 
not. Mr. I^Terns will not be here. 

The match will be f. r 100 birds, an 1 
that every moment of it will be filled 
with excitement goes without saying 

Band Concert and Dance. 

The ( oiicert and dance given la-st eve- 
nine by the Third Inf.antry ba::d, for- 
merly the City band, was a great suc- 
cess. There was a large crowd in at- 
tendance both at the concert and the 
dance. The concert program was a 
pleasing one in every way. emliracin.g; a 
variety of selections. The present band 
is the best Duluth has ever had, and tlie 
members are more enthwiastic than 

The dance was very large and the 
floor was crowded thr<!Ughout the even- 
ing. The music was of the very fin.^st, 
the band and orchestra furnishing it. 

New Excursion Boat. 

Duluth is to have anotCier excursion 
boat, and the new one, the Bloomer

the vessel will be Inspected there and 
.sent to Duluth. The boat will accommo-

excursion business out of Milwaukee. 
The vessel is expected in Duluth in a 
short time.

factory is expected to arrive here in a 
few days, or at least a g.iod part of it.

All Sorts Heard After Pavilion 

As Is usually the case after a big fire or 
accid'^nt of a sensational nature the wild- 
est stories are set afloat regarding it. 
The burning of the Pavilion yesterday 
morning proved no exception. Thare were 
all sorts of pipe dreams about the lire. 
I..!i8t evening one man was overheard 
telling a friend that the blaze was the 
work of a fire-bug who. as soon as he 
committed the deed, jumped on the High- 
land Park electric car and ran at full 
speed to the end of the line and took to 
the woods. He then went on to say that 
as .sooi as the people at Duluth Heights 
learne.1 of the tiro-bUK they orgamz.d a 
searohiag partv and scoured the woL.fis all 
the ror(^neon with firearms, finally catch- 
ing the nrt-bug about dark, several miles 
from th^ city. Other embellishments to 
the story were that the pjople of the 
Heiehts were so Incensed over lh« mat- 
ter that many of tliem were in favor of 
lvnchin.vt the fellow to the nearest tree, 
but wre prevailed on by cooler heads to 
let the law take its cours=e and tin- hre- 
buK was finailv landed in the county jail 
witrt a strong guard to prevent any 
ivnchi.ig parties. So beautifully was the 
story told that the listener ouietly slipped 
awav to a near-by telephone to ask the 
sheriff if the danger was all ov.jr. 

In West Superior many people lender- 
stood that the Incline car when It r<-a^^^«i 
Superior stieet in its tiight down the in- 
cline, tore out the masonry at the bot- 
tom the pavement across Superior street 
an^ tInallV stopped on the Northern Pa- 
citic tracks, below Michigan str-^eiaTie 
number of people mangled and l^>''j"J ac- 
cording to the Superior story, ranged from 
two 10 eighteen. 


Perry D. Martin and 

Charles Anaquet Have 

Passed Away. 

The Grand Marais Herald of May 25 
says: Word has been received of the 
death of Perry D. Martin, formerly of 
this county, at Minneapolis, on May 10. 
Mr Martin \^as born on Christmas day 
in the year 1826 and is survived by a 
twin brother. His advanced age made 
his death probable at any time, but the 
news is none the less a blow to hjs 
many friends here. Perry D. Martin 
was a man who had for more than an 
average mind and he saw much more of 
life than most people. He was highly 
esteemed by those who knew him. 

Last Sunday Charles Anaquet re- 
turned from Duluth on the Argo. On 
Monday he felt in unusual health, but 
Tuesda}' morning while eating break- 
fast he had an attack of heart trouble, 
which proved fatal within a few min- 
utes. His health has not been good for 
some years and his sudden death waa 

not altogether a surprise. He is sur- 
vived by a wife and two children. 

Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Douglas have 
commenced to build on their proposed 
tourist hotel in this place. The main 
building will be set tjack twenty feet 
from the property line, size 40 by bO 
feet, three stories, kitchen 16 Ijy 24 feet, 
one and a half stories, verandas on east 
and south sides. 

Dr. T. W. Mayhew, who was quite sick 
last week, is much imprcjAed. 

James Campbell, the well-known ex- 
plorer, was here the first of the week 
and left for ihe interior Tuesday accom- 
panied by Peter Kadonce. 

Col. William Colvill arrived on the 
Argo last Sunday and is now at nis 
home east of here. The colonel is in 
good health and has come down to look 
after his spring scrops.

Clark's Arizona Properties to 
Be Taxed Heavier. 

Phoenix, Ariz.. May 2H.— For 'he first 
time since Seiiator W. A. Clark, of Mon- 
tana, became itercsted in mining in 
Arizona he is to be forced to pay a tax 
assessment of fair size on his preat mine 
holdings. For several years, St-nator 
Clark has been enabled to avoid heavy- 
contributions to the Arizona treasury, but 
Yavajiai count.v, in which the United 
Verde mine is situated, has d«K;ided to 
assess Clark's copper jjroperty at WKi). 
heretofore a tax of $34,OiJ(> had )>e-:;n levied 
on the United Verde un a valuaiion of 
|»»0,000. T'rder the new ruling, the assess- 
ment wii; be Jfi.ooO.tMX) and Senator Cijirk's 
Arizona property will cost him *240,o<jO an- 
nually. As a matter of fact, Sti.O'XJ.OiXJ falls 
far below the value of the Uniteil Verde. 
Its value has heen estimated on a scala 
ranging from $5<i.ot«).o<i<) to |15<>.0«i0.i.(/» and In 
the recent combine of copper producers 
the Verde was valued at $75,0^30,000. 


Scrofula is an unwelcome legacy, but one which 
the children of blood poisoned parentiige must 
accept, with all its humiliating consequences. It is 
an inheritance that makes one poorer; that brings 
wretchedni^s and disease instead of health and 
riches, for the child whose ancesti-al blood is tainted 
with Scrofula or the loathsome virus of Contagious 
Blood Poison is unfitted for the arduous duties of 

life so long as any of the transmitted poiion remains , . .,. 

in its veins. Scrofula manifests itself in various forms; swollen glands about the 
neck and throat, catarrh of the head, weak eyes, hip bone disease, white swelling 
and offensive sores and abscessi^s are familiar symptoms, attended "si'^lly witi 
loss of strength, poor digestion and pale or bloodless complexion. 'The skin la 
Bometimes most dreadfiUly affected, eruptions breaking out on ail parts of the body. 
Scrofula destroys bone, tissue and flesh ; no part of the hum^n .system escapes lU 

withering. Denumbmgtoucrw 

"When nineteep, years old, and about one year 

after the birth of my first child, the glands on 
the left side of my neck began to s-vell. Four of 
the places were lanced and became open runnine: 
sores; risings came under my left arm, and the 
discharge was simply avrful. The doctors said I 
had the worst case of Scrofula they had ever 
seen. I took iodide of potassium, but this nor 
the other drugs given for this disease brought 
relief. "WThen the physicians advised me to have 
the glands removed, I decided to try S. 8. S. A 
few bottles cured me completely; no signs of 
tho terrible disease are left. ^„^„ 


Oolden Corners, Ohio. 

Parents whose blood is poi»* 
oned by their own misdeed^ 
or who themselves may b« 
suffering for the sins of some 
remote ancestor, must re- 
store their own blood to its 
normal purifcy and strength, 
or they cannot expect 
healthy, robust, children. 
S. S. S. cures Scrofula, like 
other diseases of a deep- 
seated, constitutional charac- 

ter, by restoring life and 
pnritv to the profoundly poisoned blood, and the rich, strong blood that is carried 
to the swollen and diseased glands absorbs and destroys the tuberculous deposits,

all leiritoiy coming beneath 

cislon in the Downes case Is to allow 
the sugar and tobacco trusts and other 
interests that are opposed to free trade 
with the Insular possessions to mani- 
pulate congress. And this they will 
do. Under the law as laid down there 
is nothing to prevent tlje United States 
from placing a tariff on all products im- 
ported Into the United States from Ari- 
zona and New Mexico, Alaska and 
Hawaii. Neither is there any ob- 
stacle in the way of disfranchising all 
the Inhabitants of these territorie.s. 
Justice Fuller strikes the keynote in 
his dis.senting opinion when he refers to 
the constitutional guarantee that in- 
habitants of our territory shall not be 
disturbed in their rights to life, liberty 
and property, and yet this decision ab- 
rogates the constitutional guarantee re- 
garding taxation. The po»er to tax 
takes with it the power to destroy. 

It is the privilege of any one who is 
not pleased with a decision of a judi- 
cial tribunal to go into the alley and 
"cuss the court." In this case it is not 
necessary as the members of the court 
have anticipated us in that respect, 
through the numerous dissenting 
opinions. Randolph said of one of 
John Marshall's opinions: "John Mar- 
shall is wrong. I know he i? wrong, but 
ril be damned if I can tell Just where 
he is wrong." This cannot be said of the 
majority opinion of Justice Brown in 
the Downes case. Brown is wrong and 
even a layman can point out a dozen 
places where he is wrong. Indeed It is 
difflcult to And where he Is not wrong. 
His opinion is an apology rather than 
a logical argument to sustain his posi- 
tion. The question of the constitution 
is rflill open. It fidlows the Hag. if 
the American people will it. Will they 
give their approval to the policy of

Crazy people frequently say clever 
things. When Mrs. Carrie Nati.m was 
informed that she wa.<5 under arrest for the 
malicious destruction of property she said: 
"You mean I am under arrest for the de- 
struction of malicious property." 

It Is estimated that the fire Insurance 
companies will lose a premium income of

in June and will not be renewed.

By the decision In the Downes cape, 
the supreme court has relegated the 
f. ; • * -i m to second place and made 
<.,, - - omnipotent in all the terri- 
torial pos.session? of the United Slates. 
It is not now a question of what will 
the constitution allow, lut \\hat will 
congress do ? It is up to the Repub- 
lican partv. which Is responsilile for 
this condition, to see that congress fol- out the provisions of the constitu- 
tion in the Insular possessions or allows 
the islands to be exploited by the InHu- 
eii, . s .^bieh have been back of the pres-

In the history of the United States 
there never was a graver question be- 
fore the supreme court and nevet be- 
fore di.l that court so signally fail t.i 
sustain its high reputation. It is a most 
regretable incident that on this funda- 
mental principle of constitutional power

The large number of returnin.? sol- 
diers makes the business of the pension 
i^haiks at San Francisco most profit- 
able. They gather in the worthy and 
■ the unworthy. They had as soi>n do with a soldier whose 
will permit him to misrepresent an 1 
even perjure himself as with the sick 
and wountled man who is jtistly entitled 
to relief. A Washington dispatch to the 
Chicago Tribune says that an investi- 
gation of the practice of pensi-.u 
sharpers in San Francisco and their 
methods of anm-ying soldiers returning 
from the far Flast has been started by 
the pension Ijuieau. and proaerution.3 
may be expected In the near future, nc- 
cordlng to the ofRciaLs of the law di- 
vision of the bureau. The sharpers rre 
not all representatives of the large i en- 
sion lav. llrms, but many of them are. 
and their methods are characlerize<l as 
illegal and outrageous. They meet re- 
turning stddiers at the docket and often 
persuade them to file applications for 
pensions, even before they have been 
discharged. Fees have been, in many, collected without any service 
rendered, and the sharper often threat- 
ens to take up his in Washington 
and make trouble for the soldier unless 
pai<l his fee. 

When an application is made before a 
discharge has Ireen granted. It Is void, 
but soldiers do not always know this. 
They are also made to believe that the 
attorney can get them a pension < n 
trumpet! up disabilities, whether they 
are entitled to one or not. and in many 
cases soldiers have signed documents 
swearing to ailments and perjuring 
themselves at the request of the pen- 
sion (^hark. 

The only way to obviate these base 
fraiuls Is to do away with the system of 
granting pensions thr.nigh attorneys, ft 
plan which Commissi. mer Evans rec- 
ommended .'some time ago. The present

was; all that Heart could Wish. At Night, 
although he would much rather have sat 
quietly At Home, he accompanied the 
Tigress on long Moonlit strolls and pre- 
tended that he Fnjoyed them. He Fed her 
on Bonbons and when the Jackals gave 
an Amateur Concert for the henetlt ot the 
Fish who were drowned out in the l-'ioud, 
he escorted her t.> il, although he had no 
Far for Music and could not tell Tannhau- 
'^er from Anheuser-Busch. He was. also, 
so much Afraid she would forget that he 
Loved her that he told her the story over 
and over, until he made her Tired. 

"Reauleous Creature." he cried. 'Be 
Mine. This velvet Paw shall never harden 
lts»-lf with doing Aught but S-iothing my 
Fevered Brow. I ask for Nothing Belter 
than to be vour Slave, and stand between 
vou and the hard, hard Wor.d. ^our 
Slightest Wish shall be my Law, and I 
shall Devote my Life to the Single pur- 
pose of Making you Happy, if you will 
only be mv Wife." . ^ ,. ., .. , ,, 
The Tigress had had the Inestimable 
Advantage of having been brought up by 
Mamma who thoroughly understood a 
Mother s Duty and had taught her Daugh- 
ters to know- a Good Thing when they 
'^aw It. Wherefore the Tigress thought. 
"This is a Snap. At I^st I have found 
Something I can Work and a Soul that 
?esponds unto my Own." So she accepted 
the Bear and their wedding was a Large 
and I-^ashionablc Affair, attended bv the

placed the court in a pe^sition to be the 
lauphinsr st..< k of the judicial world. It 
ij^ ;v ,,; ' ' miliar where a 
court of nine justices are compelled to 
become responsible for a decision with 
vvhic h eight of them do not agree. For 
the reputation of the court it would 
hav? been Infinitely better had the five 
stood solid for the constitution or five 
for the administration. As it Is, Justice 
Brown, by joining in the opinion of the 
maj.irity In the Delima case, reverses 
himself in the Downes case. And to 
make the matter more apparent, his 
brother justices tell him so in their dis- 
senting opinions. 

What will be done now? Will the 
administration call an extra session of 
congress to legislate for the Philip- 
pines? Will the people of the United 
States allow their representatives to al>- 
rogate the constitution by special legl-^- 
lalion for those territories to which we 
have sworn to give the benefits of a 
republican form of government? What 
is the status of the Porto Ricannow? 
Is he a citizen of the United State.''? 
Evidently he is until such time as con- 
gress can meet and rob him of his citi- 
zenship. The same is true of the Fili- 
pino. Will congress do it? Will con- 
gress dare do it? The result of the de- 


The universities have been furnishing 
the public with their quota of amuse- 
ment lately. The tragedies of Leland 
Stanford had not been forgotten by 
either the dowager, her victims. or 
their friends, when the clowns took the 
stage and began to tickle the audienc.s 
with an exhibition of the go.wly-good 
boy-the modern Joseph. First little 
Algie Crook appeared in a song and 
dance in which he declared that he had 
never kissed a girl, no, never. He fur- 
ther stated that his arm had never 
encircled a tapering waste, nor had his 
should-^.- been the resting place for a 
golden head or for that matter a head 
of any other color. The world at once 
voted Algie a howling success as a 
sissy boy and would have been de- 
llghteel to have seen him in pantalettes. 
Algie was but a sample of the average 
university freak. The act was en- 
tertaining whire it lasted. 

The third act has just been rung up. 
It exhibits the university crank In his 
element. I'rofessor Frederick Starr, of 
the Chicago university, has di.scovered 
that a man who parts his hair in the 
middle, cleans his finger nails, bathos 
twice a week or eats with his fork is a 
degenerate. Coming as this does from 
the Chicago university there is no get- 
ting around it. Degenerates they are to 
the end of the chapter. A time there 
was when experts taught that pro- 
truding upper tt-eth with a retreating 
underjaw. a receding forehead and high 
cheek bones were the primal indications 
of the degenerate, but that must have 
been a mistake. Professor Siarr knows 
all about it. Is he not a professor.'

not more cemeteries owned by the mu-

almost exclusively to the ownership and 
control of private corporations. Cleveland, 
Ohio, however, has established a beauti- 
ful cemetery. In which tlie charges are 
very low. and Seattle. Wash., has just 
bought land with the same end In view. 
Municipal crematories should be made

territorles Just aa other nations have 
done or may do with their new terrl- 
lorled. This nation Is under the control 
of a written constitution, which Is the 
supreme law of the land and the only 
scuroe of the powers which our govern- 
ment ©r any branch, or any ofllcer of It, 
may exercise at any time or any place. 
Monarchical and despotic governments, 
unrestmined In their powers by written 
constitutions, may do with newly 
acquired territories what thlis g>jvern- 
mtnt may not do consistently with our 
fundamental law. The idea that this 
country may acquire territories any- 
where upon the earth, by conquest or 
treaty, and hold them as mere colonies 
or provinces, la wholly Inconsistent 
with the spirit and general uijftJerstand- 
ing of as well as the words of the 
.imstltutlon. The glory of our Ameri- 
can s> stem of government is that it was 
cieateil by a written constitution which 
protects the people against the exer- 
cise of arbitrary, unlimited power and 
the limits of which may not be pa.-v^ed 
I .^ the government is created or by any 
branch of it. or even by the people, who 
ordained It. except by amendment. It 
will be an evil day for American liberty 
if the theory of governmer t outside of 
the supreii-.e law <>f the land finds l.xlg- 
ment In our constitutional jurisprud- 

.Justice Harlan also commented on the 
idea that conuress could "legislate the 
constitution into contiguous territory." 
Such a view, he said, might well 
surprise. If not alarm. Congi-e.^s had no 
*e>i««tence ex«ept by virtue ot the con- 
stitution. He pointed out that the ma- 
j( rity opinion suggested that conditions 
might arise where the annexation of 
distant possessions would become de- 
sirable, so that concessions mlitht well 
be made for a Mme, that ultimately our 
own theories mlsht lie carried out. But 
Mr. Harlan dissented from any such 
theory of our guvernmental system. He 

■This 'expanding future of our coun- 
try' justifying the belief that the ITnlted 
States is to become what ie called a 
•world power" — of which so much was 
heard at the argument— does not justify 
any such Juggling with the words of 
the constitution as would authorize the 
courts to hold that the words "through - 
out the I'nlted States' In the taxing 
clause of the constitution do not em- 
brace a 'territory of the Tnlted States.' 
This is a distinction which I am unable 
to make, and which 1 do not think 
ought to be made when we are endea- 
voring to ascertain the meaning of a 
great Instrument of government." 
In conclusion. Justice Harlan said: 
••The addition of Porto Rico to the 
territory of the I'nlted States has been 
recognized by direct action upon the 
part of congress. It has legislated In 
recognition of the treaty with Spain. 
If Porto Rico did not by such act be- 
come a part of the United States, It did 
become such at least when congress 
passed the Foraker act. I cannot be- 
lieve that congrerss may Impose any 
duty, import or excise with respect to 
that territory and its people which Is 
not consi.'ter.t with the constitute mal 
requiremenl that all duties. Imposts

Practical Suggestibii} About

This matter will be found to bo entirely

The most serious problem that con- 
fronts the weary housekeeper who must 
spite of the exhausfln* •'hot si>ell," pre- 
pare with her own hands the food for 
the family table la not so much what to 
provide, but how to dispense, so far as 
possible, with all useless and unnecessary 
oookiuK: hi)w to obtain a maximum of 
comfort with a minimum of heal in such 
manner aa not to st-rlously affnct the 
needful supply of ai)petlzlng and nourish- 
ing food. , , 

First discard the large roasts and heavy 
boiled meats and such foods as require 
great and prolonged heat. It Is not possi- 
ble to do away with a certain amount of 
cooked food for each day; but by careful 
selection it Is easy to i1iminl.«h to a very 
great degree the discomfort arising from 
this necessity. In a large family of meat 
eaters many consider a roast much cheap- 
er than a steak. Possibly this is true, if 
the familv is large enough to consume a 
large roast at two meals, for In hot 
weather meats must be quickly disposed 
of If you have but a Small refrigerator or 
Ire chest for keeping all your perishable 
foods Meats and fresh fruits are quite 
adverse to each other and should not be 
kiDt In the same compartment. 

Many of the serious affections that arise 
durlnp the heated term arise from neglect 
to conform to. or the Inability of the 
housewife to adapt herself and family to 
the change In temperature and require- 
ments wTiether the mercury is soaring up 
toward the century mark or takes a sud- 
den and unlooked for dip toward zero she 
will sacrifice time and strength with a 
courage worthy of a better cause. 

red are best when 

Or those quickly urcivar 
you wish to Indulge In 

weather. Steaks, chops, meat cakes and 
hamburg steaks, rolled flank steaks, 
canne'.ons. among the fresh meat dishes, 
eggs young poultry and tish v/IU complete 
a Hat of all the meatg nect-asarv for hot 
weather cooking. These meats may. of 
course, be treated in a variety of ways; 
but there need be no great amount of time 
or heat expended in their preparation. 
And what is also a matter to be taken 
Into account they do not leave a lot of 
"scr.ips" that do require some time and 
perhaps ingenuity to work over into at- 
tractive and tasty :]X''^J*l.,,^^„ 

Oar gardens furnish several delightful 
substitutes for meats In hot weather 
and it would be well for us to consider 
them more closelv and serve them more 
frequently especially for the early morn- 
ing meal, and luncheon or supper; for 
meat once a day In summer time Is quite 
sufll' l«»nt. Instead r>t dropping off the 
cereal fn^m the breakfast menu, let that 
be the substantial dish, to this may be 
added cooked prunen. datps or figs, even 
when fresh fruit ( onstitutes the first 
course; as both may he eaten at the meal 
at this season ^^th benefit. To furnish the 
necessary fat. serve good cream, either 
plain or whipped, good sweet butter with 
vour home-made bmsd. or substitute eggs 
for the dried fruit and cream and a cup 
of cr\coa. As a relish and to take the 
place of the usual ineat dish, tomatoes, 
egp-nlanl or corn vnny be .served in many 
dainty ways Cucumber? may also be 
serveiJ sanie as eg?-plant for 
or tea dish. 


Cut an egg-plant Into half inch slices, 
do not remove the skin. Dip each sUce 
into a little oil, seasoned with salt and 
pepper- place them In a fine wire l>roller 
and broil over a dear and not too hot a 
fire, for ten minute.-^, five minutes for 
each side. Place th^m on a heated dish, 
sarnlsh with parsley and serve with 

maitre dhotel sauce. „ . ,.^„ 


Put quarter of a pound of butter in a 
small sauce nen; add a level teaspoonful 
of finelv-mlnced parsley: a little ftneiy- 
mlnoed "thyme and quarter of a tea.«poon- 
ful of onion iuice. pinch of salt and dash 
of pepper. Stand the saucepan over hot 
water and whisk smartly with an egg 
whip until the .^ance rearhes simmering 
point. Remove and serve at once. 

SAN cheesf:. 

Peel the egg plant, cut into cubes, scrap- 
hiK out the large sf^ds. Rub a ."saucepan 
with sll.-ed onton. nut In a gorwl-slzci piece 
of butter and when melted add the egg 
plant searon with nufmcs. Stir and cook 
slowly and when done add from ball to 

three-quarters of a cup of the cheese, 
adding a little cream If necessary. \V hen 
done, .serve on a hot dish, garnished with 
sippets of buttered toast. Sprinkle a lit- 
tle cheese on top of egg plant. 


Choose laiher small egg plant», wash 
and drv and cut In halves. Scoop out all 
the Inside except a thin layer next the 
.«kln; sprinkle the shells with salt and 
turn upside down to drain. Chop the part 
you have taken from the shells. Mince 
onion, about a tablespoonful to each cgj 
plant, and brown It slightly In a little 
butter, then a.Id to the chopped eggg plant 
and cook together tn a saucepan to cook 
out the moisture. Add a few mushroom* 
chopped fine or a little Worcestershire 
sauce and minced parsley. Mix in an equal 
quantity of dry bread crumbs, season to 
taste with salt and pepper. Cook all to- 
gether a few minutes, then remove from 
the fire and add the beaten yolks of eggs, 
two to each plant. Fill the shells, cover 
the top with bread crumbs, put into a 
shallow pan, brushed well with oil. arid 
bake half an hour unless shells are sniaii. 
This makes a nice dish for dinner served 
without meat. „,„.„ 


Scald and peel large firm tomatoes ana 
put thom Immediately In a cold place. 
\vhtn ready to ser\'e cut them Into slices 
three-quarters of an Inch thick or a large 
lomato In three pieces. Rub your fine wire 
broiler with a piece of fat bacon, and 
lav on the tomatoes and broil on both 
sides until a nice brown. Season with salt 
and pepper and serve on a hot dl.';h wltn 
garnish of cress or parsley. 

The tomatoes will keep their shape bet- 
ter If they are not peeled, but do not look 
so nice. They may be dipped in oil Instead 
of rubbing the grill with the bacon 
and may be served with a llltie grated 
cheese sorlnkled over them. 

Tomatoes in cream. 

Cut the tomatoes In slices without peel- 
lii" them, dust with salt and pepper and 
drTdge well with flour. Fry them a.nice 
brown In vegotabl* oil or bacon fat. When 
done place them on a hot platter. Measure 
the fat remaining In the pan and to every 
level tablespoonful add a level taolespoon- 
ful rf Hour; stir until smooth and add 
half a pint of cream to two level table- 
spoonfuls of flour and same amoun. or 
fat Stir and cook until It boils up well, 
rcoi-on to tasto and pour around and over 
the tomatoes. Serve at once. 

Take eight ears of sweet corn, score 
down the center of each grain and prcss 
out the pulp. Add two cups of milk, 
three eggs well beaten, salt and pepper 
to taste and suflflclent flour to make a 
batter that will hold In good shape Drop 
the mixture by tablespoonfuls Into hot 
fat. brown on bith sides and serve hot 
for* breakfast dish. _,„,,^« 


There are many who mu<h prefer cold 
meatr. In hot weather. While these m^^^ 
require some little time to prepare they 
may be prepared on days when the te_m- 
i>€rature does not make even a little fire 
miendurable and thus provide against 
another hot spell. Meat dishes which are 
well seasoned and spiced will keep well in 
a cold place even in the hottest weather 
In temperate climates. In cllmtes when 
they cannot be kept over a day it were 
belter not to eat meat at all. 


Pdect a large, full-grown chicken; pre- 
rare It for roasting. Just cover it with 
belling water; add a piece of bav leaf, a 
blade of mace, a small onion, eight whole 
clovet and a sprig of parsley. Place over 
the fire and bring to bollmg, then stand 
the boiler where Tt wUl Just slmm-jr until 
the chicken Is very tender. When ■ one »et 
it cool in Its own liquor. Take out, re- 
mcve skin, fat and bone; put these back 
into the kettle again and reduce by sim- 
mering for an hour. Then .strain on Irom 
the bones. Add half a box of gelatine, stir 
until dissolved. Then cut the chicken into 
•mail dice, season well with salt and pep- 
ner and a little celery .>»aU; put the meat 
Into an oblong mold and season tne 3el y 
and DOur over It stirring the meat slightly 
with a fork so the jelly can mix thougn It. 
Set at once In a cold place to harden. This 
can be served In slices with lemon anu

served as a salad with mayonnaise. L>y

the Brains sown on the spring plowed

the statt the rains, though not neavy

and potatoes are up well, and In soutn-

The fore part of the week was quite 
warm with showers of rain In most sec- 
tions.' but too light, with very few ex- 
ceptions, to be of any benefit whatever; 
the latter part of the week was c«>ol. with<i In all ptirts; as a rule too light to 
do anv damage, except to gardens and 
tender' vegetation. The week closed with 
moderately hl.s;h temperature. 

Corn planting is nearlng completion, 
and flax seeding Is over half finished; 
some of the earlv .«own llax is already uu. 
but In the Missouri river counties, seed- 
ing has been susMended. owing to the 
drouth prevailing there, no rain of any 
consequence having fallen this season. 
While most f.f the reports agree that the 
crop Is not suffering, still, wltlr few ex- 
ceptions, the statement that rain Is baciiy 
needed comes from all. In the extreme 
southern nortlon of the state, good f""yj- 
ers fell during the wek. and that is the 
onlv section where rain is not needed. 

Grain that is im K*-n^>a"y l«f'ks strong 
and healthy, and fn most places covers the 
ground: late sown grain has not sprouted 
yet In many and will not until 
the ground Is moistened.

bestThTng on market. 

The Boston News Bureau quotes a 
"student of the steel situation'' as navlng 
expressed this opinion of the L nited 
States Steel corporation: 

The United States Steel corporation Is 
the best Industrial proposition ihat has 
even been placed before the investing pub- 
lic While I may l>e put down as some- 
what out of tune with the times. I believe 
that within three years United »{ates 
Steel Corporation preferred stock will sell 
at 150 and the common stock at 200. 

The common .<.tock will receive ,i divid- 
end of at least 5 per cent In July and by 
reason of the earning power back of it l 
expert tho common stock to receive trom 
12 to 15 per cent nor annum in dividends 
within a period of three years. 

The fourdatlin of the 1 nitcd States 
Steel Ccrroratlon Is Its practical control 
of the I.ake Superior ore deposits Presi- 
dent Schwab recently testified before the 
industrial commission that his company 
controlled 80 ner cent of the Lake Superi- 
or ore deposits and since that time the 
company nas acqulre<l additional ore 
lands This places the company in f»n 
Impregnable position as respects compe- 
tition. , , 

The Tennessee Coal and Iron company 
and the W%st Virginia comp.-xnles cannot 
compete with It by reason of the lact that 
these companies employ differ?nt kinds 
of ore. far Inferior to the Lake Superior 
product. . . 

The United States Steel company is 
also In a position to command the export 
trade of th«> world, for it can turii out a 
ton of steel billets at PlCsburg f r JS.Sfi per 
ton whlih is less thnn the Englisn rnills 
can mine and place a ton of coal at their 
blast furnr.ces. 

T'nder such trade conditions with tnc 
best managemen in he world and back- 
ed bv the leading financial Interests in 
he T'nlted Stabs. I fall to see how the 
fompany can help meeting with great suc- 


Strikers at Handkerchief 
Factory Make Trouble. 

New York, May 29.— The girl strikers 
at the handkerchief factory of Acheson, 
Warden & Co., at Passaic, N. J., made a 
riotous demonstration today. One hun- 
dred girls reported for duty, and desrdte 
police protection several of them were 
roughlv handled by the strikers. The 
latter then stoned Itie factory, smashing 
many windows. The police arrested four 
of the strike leaders, but lost one of 
them in n charge from the strikers. Th? 
strikers number over 300. 


Miners Propose to Enter Into 

Denver. May 29.— An agitation has been 
begun among the delegates to the annual 
convention of the Western Fede-ration of 
Miners, now in S€f«ion here. wKh a view 
to defeating E<lward Boyce for re-election 
as president of the fetleratton. A resolu- 
tion has been introduced at the convention 
of the Western Labor union providing 
that the union shall enter actively Into

Shipment of Vitrified 

Brick Will Interest 


Outside of tlie wheat, log and ore ship- 
ments that are made on the railroads to 
this city regularly, one of the largest 
single shipments that has been made for 
some time will be the vitrified brick 
from Galesburg. 111., for the paving of 
Superior street, is learned that 
two of the railroad companies Into Du- 
luth. the Great Northern and the North- 
ern Pacific company, are out after the 
business. The city will require 1,500.000 
brick, and this, figured down to the basi.s 
of a railroad shipment, means about 150 

The haul from Galesburg to this city 
will be about 450 miles, and it is (lulte 
evident that the BurlinsKm riad, on 
which line Galesburg is situated, will 
control the business as far as the Twin 
Cities, a haul of about 300 miles. The 
competition for the business from the 
Twin Cities will probably lie between 
the Great Northern and ttie Northern 
Pacific companies. The routing of the 
business will be done by the briek com- 
pany at Galesburg. The Milwaukee 
road will not be a competitor in this 
case, ay the business will be outside of 
its territory. The Northern Pacific com- 
pany will doubtless claim a little th« 
advantage In its bid for the business, 
from the f.^.ct that the company's yard is 
S3 located that the brick can be dis- 
tributed from it parallel to Superior 
street, and not more than two blocks 
from the street at any portion that will 
be paved. To deliver the brick so con- 
veniently for the city, it is said that tfie 
Great Northern would probably have to 
pav switching charges out of proportion 
to anv rate that it might make for the 
haul from the Twin Cities. 

Freimuths vs. West Duluth. 

The Freimuth and Duluth teams 
of the city Jeague will play tomorrow, at 
2-30 at the Oneota park. The Freimuth 
team wae defeated by West Duluth sev- 
eral weeks ago. but sin:e that timo the 
former organization has braced up 
wonderfully. Ryan, who will pitch for 
Freimuths. was with the Illinois state

the well starched skirts. 

The Cuban heel, which, by the way. 
i.s nothing more than the shape oC heels 
.seen on all slippers 9f colonial times. 
l»id.s very fair to make tht- long loved 
and highly injurious Louis XV heel look 
for another job. Already fa.stidious 
and tickle womankind is tossing aside 
her stilte*! Fi>nch slippers to have the 
.slanted t'lihtii heel litt.J to her new 
.shoes. X>H -inly are hou.^e and even- 
ing footgear app*«ring in this new 
shape, but walking shoes are falling 
into line. The chief charm, of course. 
of the Cuban heel, is its novelty, and 
then it certainty does help to minimize 
the lenKlh uf the foot, and add to the 
wearer's height without seeming so 
cruelly uncomfortable and dangerous 
to health and sure Icomotion as its luw 
vulgarized French relaiive.

ill It fashion did not at first 

i nt.iKious. at least as far as the 

Americans were concerned, but It has 
appeared here in a mild and lovely 
form just as Paris is recovering from 
its inlluence. 

One pretty breakfast gown shown In a 
leading store illustrates the advan- 
tageous use of three different kinds of 
ribbons. The body and sleeves of the 
robe are wrought of black panne rib- 
bon pin dotted in white and allied to 
plain cream white panne strips. The 
annexed tlounce, the Empire jacket top 
and the long scarf endj? are made of sky 
blue Liberty satin ribbon of sash width, 
and brocaded over in big pink marsh- 
mallow blooms. N'early all the extra- 
vagant summer negligees ?how a com- 
Itination of ribbon bands and lace entre 
deux whipped together. and often 
enough three different pastel tints are 
reflected in the narrow lines of silk. A 
gown so made usually shows the light 
weight and shining louisine silk and 
tea colored alenciennes in combimtiun. 
A great cause for congratulation 
among women Is the return of the ill- 
over rtat lace gown. For .something lik« 
four years now we have been dutifully 
wearing elegant robes of the coarser 
raised lates over satin and silk, wear-

become vulgarized, imitated in cheap 
poods and over d(me. Now. ho.vever.

Valenciennes. Mechlin. Cluny, Chan-

their rightful fashionable position, and 
nothing seems more hopelessly ,»ut of

robe. The net laces, in short, are 
placidly elbowing everything else off 
the lace*^ ounter. and there is a flufTy, 
tlounee fascination about them that the 
heavily woven types could never show. 
A few f)f them indeed, show m>itifa 
from the heavier sort applied at inter- 
vals to the flat, cohweb-like surface, 
and some of them have small figures 
worked upon them in spangles. These, 
however, are the fantasy effects, and 
can only be applied by dressmaker.^ of 
infinite tact and high artistic impulse.

welcome out. A number of brides have

A Household TreaLSure 

AUIIcrstown, Ohio, July 2, 1900. 
Wine of Cardui Kas b<cn a household treasure with us. When I married Mrs. Snapp my 
friends .-icictiled me and a^keJ ir.e uhy i ma ried a dead person. They said she would not 
live until lall. She liken ".veii^hed less than 100 pounds. Now she weighs 145 pounds. She 
has three boys, the last vettbing 9i^ oounds at birth and the other two 10 pounds each. 
That was her exclusive medicine and I am so well pleased with what it has done for her. 
Wear* willing to do you all the good we can lor suffering humanity. W. H. SNAPP. 

Mrs. Snapp has health and children, instead of waiting a slow death amid 
the ^oom of a barren home. Instead of her own cry of pain breaking the 
silence of a darkened sick roon^, the prattle of her three children let sunshine 
into her heart No wonder her husband writes of Wine of Cardui as a "house* 
hold treasure". The Snapp family owe to Wine of Cardui all in life worth living 
for. A healthy mother h the foundation of a happy home. For fifty yean 


has made happy mothers of skk and emaciated women. Thousands of women have written jratefat 
letters with the same joyful rinj as this letter from Ohio. The letters tell of freedom from those 
dra^in^ monthly pains and of complete cures of the worst cases of falling of the womb, ••whites" 
and the terrible headaches and backaches that follow n%enstrual disorders. They show that suffering 
the pan((s of female ills is unnecessary when Wine of Cardui can be secured. Why do you suffer when 
such testimony is placed before you ? Dru^ists sell $1.00 bottles.

the new driving ▼«!! Is made of very 

crisp, clean «ilk AiuisUn with a deep 
hemvtitched bort!l|r. lAll the beat of 
the country para^ls ^ of pongee 
brown or pongee cream silk with oroad 
borders of blue, crtmeon, green or lilac 
hemstitched on U» white. Ribbon 
wraped handles are the latest novelties 
in sunshade manufacture. The stick of 
the parosoi Is first of plain, polished 
owod, round and beautifully uniform in 
size from tip to tip. Over the word rib- 
bons of different widths, texture and 
colors are braided to form geometric 
patterns, and at the base of the stick 
the ends are tied in a full and flowing 
bow. This gay and conventional device 
harmonises well with the taffeta, pon- 
gee or satin coverings, but the most 
costly parasols have handles of ebony 
and ivory knobbed and braceletted with 
Jewels. From Japan are imported the 
most exquisitely painted and embroid- 
ered parasol toi>s of silk, satin and silk 
linen. These, however, are as a rule, far 
too costly and too beautiful to be carried 
at any time, save very late in the after- 
noon, when the sun has lost all power 
to do the delicate colors any harm. The 
handles of these a>e of carved ivory, 
and sometimes of wood exquisitely 
treated with delicate silver or bronze 

Bathing dresses of black silk flannel 
have, in the slang of the street, caught 
on. Black silk flannel does not shrink; 
it shines like the coat of a baby seal 
after a thorough wetting, and, though 
it does not shed the water as freely as 
a mohair. It renders its wearers less 
liable to chills when v^he steps from the 
protecting waves. Stout women rejoice 
in the vogue that black has found on the 

Now that the bathing .season will ,so 
soon open, the prospect is very fair for 
the introduction of a brand new and 
very Frenchy s.henie for making an 
attractive appeai-ance when bound for 
a dip. A French woman, as every tra- 
veler to the Gallic seaside knows, tseis a 
great deal of store by her coiffure when 
she bathes. As a rule, however, waves 
are big blundermg things and no re- 
specters of pompadours, ringlets and 
such, so that the fertile French mind 
has been birsy in a search for expedients. 
It did not take long for the Parisian 
hair dresser to find out what was want- 
ed, and with ready tact one of the 
masters of the art has invented a 
Lather's wig. This is made of animal's 
hair in any color you may prefer, of 
short or long, straight or curled, colfEed 
or flowing tresses, and it is all mounted 
on a waterproof of skull cap that fits 
over the wearer's head to the absolute 
exclusion of the salt water. 

As a rule Fren .h women refuse 'o tie 
their heads up in oiled silk caps and red 
handkerchiefs, rightly insitsting that no 
face could appear to advantage unde'- 
such severe treatment, and until last 
summer a great deal of wading and 
very little swimming was characteristic 
of the French watering places. Last 
summer, however, the pretty maids and 
matrons headed nonchantly into the 
breakers and came up with their be- 
coming wigs of brown, red. black or 
golden hair shining bravely. 

A few envious American women found 
out the secret and pur'-hused l>alhing 
wigs with which to stir up envy and 
oovetousness at their home resorts. 
Very naturally these wigs fetch a high 
price, because they have to be made 
with the greatest care, and not. as a 
rule, from human hair, for that can- 
not stand salt water. The silken hair 
of Angora goats and of some dogs is 
u.«!ed. which accountts for the prepond- 
erance of the short, fluffy, curly wigs 
that are seen. 

Numliers of women who either can- 
not afford or have not yet heard of 
bathing wigs have adopted thie« season 
a favorite Frem-h d>'\ Ice of having 
their coquettish silk bathing caps sur- 
rounded with artificial curls. By this 
device one's appearance Is preserved 
from the 7?horn or bald aspect so many 
women wear when all the hair is lifted 
from their faces. It takes about three 
sets of curls to carry a faithufl bather 
through a season, but the cost and the 
trouble is counted as nothing be.^^ide the 
preservation of one's reputatTon for 
youth and l)eauty— a reputation so often 
irreparably lost at the seaside. 

Another novelty besides curls and 
wigs that lighten the trials of the salt 
water loving women are woolen bathing 
ho?e. .so shaped that where nature has 
been stingy in rounding out curves the 
defect can be admirably remedied. The 
women who have a keen eye to the de- 
tails of their appearance are carefully 
fitted to their Iwithinc hose, and ^ few 
are eagerly intere^^ted in suits made of 
figured mohair or silk flannel. 

Only the youthful or slender should 
venture to wear cream or sand white 
serge suits spattered over with blue 
anchors or blue mohair covered with 
figures of various shells in white. 

It Ls a pity, but it is true, that Home 
influence has prevailed to order the 
ready made and in other respects ad- 
mirable bathing dress cut t.xi far open 
jr. the throat. Women whose taste is 
above reproach, and ^ho also buy ready 
made bathing suits, purcha^se big bright 
silk handkerchlef.s and knot them about 
their throats to All up the necks of their 
suits. The beach is not the nlace ex- 
actly for decollete gowns, and it Is a 
reckless woman who is willing to ex- 
pose more of her throat thar is abso- 
lutely necessary to the water's glare and 
sun's rays. 


Determined to Close the 

Saloons of an Illinois 


Carlyle, 111.. May 29.— Miss Addle 
Eerry. the 19-year-old daughter of Frank 
Berry, of this city, has inaugurated a 
sort of Carrie Nation crusade against 
the .saloons in this, the leading city and 
county seat of Clinton county. She 
created consternation among the drink 
dispensers, visiting every place where 
Intoxicating beverages are sold. The 
saloons are not kept wide open on Sun- 
day, but a per-son ran obtain entrance 
via .'«ide or rear doors. MLss Berry has 
assumed the respon.^iblllty of putting a 
stop to ttiis practice. She went into the 
interior of saloons, pencil and tablet in 
hand, and leisurely Jotted down the 
names of those who were in the room at 
the time. 

She says she will visit State's Attorney 
Ford and Insist that six complaints be 
issued against as many proprietors of 
saloons, on the cbarge of dispensing 
liquors on Sunday in violation of ttie 
state laws. 

Miss Berry starh?d her fight against 
the drink dispensers last week by having 
two of them prosecuted for .selling liquor 
to her father, who is addicted to drink. 
One of them pleaded guiltj- tj the charge 
and was fined J20 and costs. Ttie young 
lady who has taken such a stand against 
the saloons is a pretty school teacher 
and 1? a determined young woman. 

In speaking of her experience, she de- 
clared she was a UtUe embarrassed 
when the first saloon was entered, but 
after that It was in some respects a 
pleasure, since she felt that she was 
doing right. Admittance was not denied 
her excepting at one place, where a bar- 
rel was placed against the door. Later 
she managed to enter this building.

Machinists on Southern 

Railway Await Orders 

to Go Out. 

DissaHsfied With Results 

of Conference With 


Men Are Still Hopeful 
of Success at Cin- 

Washington. May 2a.— Ninety-seven 
per cent of the machinists in the em- 
ploy of the Southern railway have 
voted to strike for the nine-hour day, 
and are now only awaiting the order 
of President James O'Connell, of the In- 
ternational Association of Machinists, 
before going out. This was the an- 
nouncement made today by the spokes- 
man of a delegation of machinists, 
representing the shops of the system, 
which called on Vice President and 
General Manager Gannon yesterday. It 
appears that the members of the dele- 
gation were not plea.sed with the re- 
sults of their conference with Mr. Gan- 
non, and at its conclusion wired every 
shop, ordering a poll of the men to be 
taken on the propo.sition to strike. The 
telegram to "poll the shop." which was 
sent to Charleston. S. C. by mistake, 
was transmitted "pull the shop." The 
entire force ceased work at once. 

Vice President Gannon has been ad- 
vised of the action of the men at 
Charleston. He says that a strike on 
the Southern will affect 300 machinists. 
At present he does not regard the situ- 
ation as serious. 

Cincinnati, May 28.— Striking ma- 
chinists here are still hopeful of suc- 
cess, although no sign of yielding has 
been given by the larger employers. Al- 
together, twenty Arms, employing 700 
men. are said to have settled with their 

New York, May 28.— At the office of 
A. M. Waitt. superintendent of motive 
pr .ver of the New York Central rail- 
road, it was said today that no demands 
from the machinists at Depew or else- 
where on the line of the road, had Vy^en 
received. The officials said they had 
not heard of any impending strike or 
any dissatisfaction on the part of any 
of the men at the conditions prevailing. 

Philadelphia, Mav 28— Nearly 200 
machinists Joined the strikers' ranks 
today. All the men in the testing ma- 
chine works of Tinius Olsen struck, 
but a few hours later a .settlement was 
effected and the men returned to work. 

Forty machinists employed at the Ta- 
bor Manufacturing company's works 
returned to work today, having l>een 
granted the nine-hour day settlement.

Union Elevated Loop Accepts 
Offer of Northwestern. 

Chicago, May 28. — At a meeting today 
of the board of directors of the North- 
western Elevated Railroad company and 
the Union Elevated Loop company, the 
Northwestern decided to offer the Loop 
company J125 cash per share for all the 
$,').000,000 Loop stock. This offer was ac- 
cepted oending its ratification by the 
stocltholders on Aug. 1. No action was 
talcen In the negotiations for the pur- of IBie Lake street or Metropolitan 
elevated road.s. 

It Is announced that more than two- 
thirds of the Loop stock has been 
pledged. The Ulinol.s Trust and Sav- 
ings bank, of Chicago, and Blair & Co., 
of New York, have been designated as 
depositories for the stock. 


Metal Trades Representatives 
Meet For That Purpose. 

Chicago. May 2i— Representatives of 
the National Metal Trades' association 
are in .session here today to decide what 
action that body shall take at the Jotat 
arbitartlon conference with a commit- 
tee of tSie International Association of 
Machinists tomorrow. It is said the 
manufacturers take the ground that the 
machinists violated the New York agree- 
ment when the strike order was sent out, 
and that, notwithstanding the fact that, 
as a whole, the local machinists did not 
strike, they are not entitled to the 
metaT trades' consideration. If this at- 
titude is maintained at tomorrow's con- 
ference, say the machinists. It can result 
in no other action than a declaration on 
the part of the mau;hinlsts to make It a 
fight to the finish. 


In His Skull But Burritt Has 

Charleston. W. Va.. May 29.— A strange 
story was brought by a physician from 
the Ritter lumber camp on Buffalo creek. 
Clay county. He relates that during a 
drunken row a few nights ago Sampson 
Burritt was shot three times at close 
range by Peter Stlllson in the back of 
the head. Supposing Burritt was dead. 
Stillson fled. Burritt was carried to his 
shack, where later he revived and was 
soon on the way to recovery. The three 
bullets had each entered near the base 
of the brain and each had deflected, and 
pa.tsing around the skull under the skin, 
had come out In front, without doing 
serious harm. Two bullets passed around 
the right side and one to the left. Both 
Sti isop arrl Hurrltt .-.rt'rom Kentucky, 
and had been at Buffalo for a year or 

Sprained Ankle Quickly Cured 

"At one time I suffered from a severe 
sprain of the ankle." says Geo. E. Cary. 
editor of the Guide. Washington. \ a. 
"After using several well recommended 
medicines without success. I tried 
Chamberlain's Pain Balm, and am 
pleased to say that relief came as aoon 
as I began its use and a complete cure 
speedily followed. This remedy has also 
been used in my family for frost bitten

Breaks Out In Two Kentucky 
Counties. . 

Owensboro. Ky.. May 29.— The oil ex- 
citement has broken out in this section 
and in both McLean and Hancock coun- 
ties—McLean lying just south of here, 
and Hancock on the east. Oil is to be 
bored for and capital is being attracted 
to both fields. The boring in McLean is 
to be done two miles north of Calhoun. 

In 1870 a well was bored there under 
the direction of L. W. Gates, and for a 
number of years was operated by him 
On a small scale, but he removed from 
Calhoun to Middletown. Ky.. and a few 
years ago died there. In his will he left 
the land on which his well was located, 
together with other property, to his 
widow, his third wife, and his children 
by her. and in a separate paragraph in 
his will he recounted his experiences 
thirty years before with this oil prop- 
erty, describing how he worked it and 
the number of barrels of oil he realized 
every twenty-four hours while he oi>er- 
ated it. His will was admitted to pro- 
bate, and later one of the devisees under 
the will brought a suit in the McLean 
circuit court for a sale of the land, and 
after some litigation it was bought by G. 
W. Gates, one of the heirs, who now re- 
sides at Richmond. He has induced 
capitalists to go to Calhoun and examine 
the property, and so well satisfied were 
they that oil is there in paying quan- 
tities that they have leased the land, to- 
gether wlih 2000 acres In the neighbor- 
hood and adjoining It. and will proceed 
at once to develop it. 

The owners of the Hancock county oil 
fields are In correspondence with Penn- 
sylvania capitalists, who are going there 
to develop it. The oil in both places has 
been pronounced by experts to be the 
equal of any in the Pennsylvania oil

Cardinal Gibbons to Remain 
Longer In Rome. 

Rome. May 29.— Cardinal Gibbons has 
det. rmined to prolong his stay In Rome 
and he will remain here duri! 
greater part of the month of Jui. 

The cardinal says tlie appointment of 
a rector of the American college here, 
lo succeed Mcr. O'Connell. the bishop 
of Portland. Maine, has not yet reached 
a stage where any statement can be 
made. It Is understood the cardinal, 
during the audience he had with the 
lope. explained at length the views of 
the Washington i-ov.-rnment riifMrding 
the religious matters In the Philippines. 

Cardinal Gibbons is also advising the 
pope to consider the question of a suc- 
cessor to Cardinal Martinell as papal 
delegate In the United States, but it is 
un<lerstood the dlfliculties encountered 
in selecting a scucessor are eo grent 
that there is little prospect of the early 
departure of Cardinal Martlnelli from 
the United States.

Washington, May 30.— The train bear- 
ing the president and Mrs. McKinley 
and party accompanying them on the 
tour through the ended its Journey 
here at 7:oO o"clock, exa.nly on sch.^d- 
ule lime. Mrs. McKinley immediately 
was removed to the carriage In waitl.ig 
and driven slowly to*the White House. 
She looked pale and worn, the natural 
result of the gmve ordeal through 
which she recently has passed. Se^ro- 
tiuy Cortelyou etated that she was 
bearing up splt-ndidly. "She has paJ.+'d 
a comfortable night." he said, "and is 
feeling better today. She shows a grad- 
ual Improvement." 

The jucsident has planned to attend 
the Memorial day at th-; Na- 
tional cemetery at Arlington today in 
the event that there is no change^ for 
the wortse in Mrs. McKlnle>'s condition. 
No dem(>n?trati<m marked any i>>r- 
tion of the early morning run of the 
^residential train toward Washlngtoti. 
A few people were gathered at points 
along the way. but there were none but 
."ilent greetlng.s. In accordance with the 
spirit that has prevailed among the 
crowds past whom the train has run 
since the start homeward last .Satur- 
day morning. In this city sevetxil hun- 
dred people lined the sidewalks. A 
poli(e cordon of a score or more men 
was early on the scene and st.Jtl<7n?'l at 
Intervals along both sides of the track 
reserved for the train. Owing 
early hour, perliaps. only a few 
were preFent 

to I he 

horses. Mrs. McKinley was removed 
from the private car Olympia to the 
carriage in a chair borne by the presi- 
dent and Dr. Rlxey. assisted by several 
others. She was pale, and showeii her 
weakened condition. Several members 
of the cabinet stood Alongside ready to 
lend a helping hand. Mrs. McKinley 
was slowly lifted Into the carriage and 
made comfortable. Then to avoid the 
rough cobblestones oj the streets, tne 
crowd was cleared from the smooth 
sloue sidewalk, next to the depot along 
which the carriage was slowly driven on 
the way to the White House. 

The members of the cabinet and the 
others of the party entered their car 
rjage.s and were driven home. Secretary 
Cortelyou, who has had the responsl- 
bllitv of the entire trip, and has man- 
aged" It so successfully . was early astir 
un the train and was the last to leave 

It is probable that a meeting <>f 'he 
cabinet will be held tomorrow, Friday 
being a regular cabinet day. No meet- 
ing has been arranged for today. 

The president's carriage, on arrival at 
the White House, stopped at the edge 
of the plaza, instead of being driven 
into the regular driveway. This was 
to avoid the steps at the driveway in- 
terfering with the lifting of the chair. 
An usher stood at the horses' heads as 
the president and Dr. Rlxey, aided by 
attendants, carefully lifted Mrs. Mc- 

meiits".'^ li'reakfast was served there 
and later the president spent a few- 
minutes in the cabinet room looking 
over a few Important matters. Dr. 

New York. May 30.— The Iron Age 
says: The iron trade has drifted into an 
attitude of expectancy, which in some 
quarters is verging upan uneasiness. As 
one of the leading iron merchants in the 
country puts it, the trade generally fails 
to realize that the rate of buying is one 
thing and the rate of consumption is 
quite another. The buying usually 
comes in pronounced waves, there hav- 
ing been such a rudh this spring. The 
consumption, which la, after all, the 
dominating factor, is less subject to 
violent fluctuation and unfortunately 
cannot be so quickly and so accurately 
gauged. The tiret evidence that con- 
sumers have overbought appears in the 
form either of protests against rapid 
deliveries or of demands to delay ship- 
ments. Applying that to the present 
situation, the facts are that Important 
consuming interests are rather crowd- 
ing the makers, often asking for antici- 
pation of deliveries. That, for instance, 
is true of the Western farm implement 
makers. Incidentally, this shows, too, 
that consumers are not carrying large 
sticks of raw material. 

Another proof of the current heavy 
consumption is furnished by the condi- 
tion of the export trade. A little inci- 
dent is cited to throw light on the situa- 
tion from this point of view. The story 
has It that one of the large works of the 
United States Steel corporation 
found to be over 
100,000 tons. The 
to another very large . 
that one In turn to overflowing up to 

Nov. 1. 

The steel rail manufacturers have ac- 
cepted orders during the current fiscal 
year aggregating 2.600.000 tons, exclusive 
of seconds, that being by far Une greatest 
year In the trade. It must be under- 
stood, of course, that this total repre- 
eents all the orders booked for delivery 
during the year beginning Oct. r. 1900. 
A large part of this tonnage has, of 
course, been delivered, but it Is quite 
clear that the mills will be forced to 
keep running at top speed tJ fill 
orders, if in fact they are at all able to 

do so. , , 

Under the circumstances a prolonged 
lull in buvlng should cause no uneasi- 
ness, because evidently the heavy con- 
sumption Is progressing right along. 
The export trade Is very dull In 
branches of the heavy Iron trade. 


Washington. May 30.-Memorlal Day 
was observed in Washington with the 
usual ceremonies. The weather, which 
has been stormy for the past week, was 
delightful and the exercises at the differ- 
ent cemeteries where soldiers are burled 
were largely attended. President McKin- 
ley Intended to go to Arlington to partic- 
ipate in the ceremonies, but as the phy- 
sicians called at the White House about 
the time he had set for his departure the 
president delayed his visit. He expects to 
drive through the cemetery this after- 
noon. Secretary Root and Gen. Corbm 
drove to Arlington in the early part of the 

Net only were there many contributions 
of rtowers and greens from Individuals for 
the purpose of decorating the graves of 
the t^oldier dead, but the resources of the 
nation*! government were added to these 
and all of the rich spring blossoms of the 
botanical gardens, the parks and the 
other jroveriin\ent conservatories were 
freelv placed at the disposal of the dec- 
orating committees The public monuments 
about the city, most of the statUfs of 
heroes of the civil war. were draped with 
a combination of national colors and 
mourning The colors flew at half mast 
from the executive buildings and froni 
manv private flag staffs The weather had 
rather unexpectedly turned out perfect- 
Iv charming. The Grand Army of the Re- 
public, through its local posts was in gen- 
eral charge of the ceremonies, and while 
a conscientious distribution was made 
of the forces of this organization be- 
tween the various cemeteries, Arlington, 
as usual, was the point of central Inter- 
est Israel W. Stone, the department 
commander, was in charge here and the

Holiday Will Be Used to Get Machinists Into Line 

to Tie Up Chicago Machinery 

Plants on Friday. 

Chicago. May 30.— "If today were not 
a holiday the machinists' strike would 
be In full blast before the manufac- 
turers had eaten their morning meal." 
said Business Agent Roderick, of dis- 
trict No. 8 of the International Associa- 
tion of Mechinlste. It is regarded as 
an advantage by the union men that 
they have a holiday preceding the strike 
as all the workmen can be .so rounded 
up In the Interval of one day that the 
tie-up of the local machinery plants will 
be made ikractlcelly complete tomorrow 


According to the calculations of the 

unt n sS leader, Roddick about 2OO 

machinists will be involved at the start 

n the general walkout. This is on y 

half the number of union machinists In 

Chicago and vicinity. It is claimed by; 
Roderick and others of the union s ex- 
ecutive board that the reason the other 
'>0O0 will not be affetced is because their 
employers have either signed the unloij 
scale of wages already, 
their willingness to sign. 

or expre-ssed 

Whether the strike of the machinists 
will involve other line* of Ixbor at the 
plants where strikes go Into force is, 
deemed problematical. All along It ha»^ 
been the claim of the union machinists 
that a strike by them would result la, 
the complete tie-up of every fotindry oi*. 
■workshop under -the ban of their strike 
order. If these claims are made good, 
the general strike now d»=l«red would, 
throw perhaps 25,000 or 33,d00 men oul;^ 
of employment In Chicago, as that Is 
the total number estimated In the sm-. 
plovment of the local "lan^ff cturera^

Board of Public Works 

Preparing For Quick 


Injury Claims Due to De- 
fective Sidewalks 

roc? 1^:1 


The a^lay in building new sidewalks 
liaa been the source of sharp ciiticisrn 
throughout the city. A3 usual the bulk 
of this criticism has been hurled at the 
lit iiartnu nt of pub'J.t works, yet the de- 
IwrUiH-nt is not responsible for the de- 
lay. Under a resolution of the council 
the city oannot butld the didewalka until 
the owne:d t.f pror'»-rty have been i?iven 
thirty days in whicli to build their own 
walks T ..)d of thirty days for 

the first .-, . < ordered by the coun- 

cil doi'8 not expire till June 15. 

The department of public works has 
made all necessary arrangements to go 
ahead with the .sidewalk constru.aion 
es floon as this 30-day handicap Is re- 
moved. But in the meantime there is 
vigorous kicking from all parts of the 
city. The walks are in dangerous con- 
dition, and personal injury suits •• re 
piling up against the city at a great 
rate. In fact there is a question If it iS 
not more expensive for the city to ad- 
here to the aO-day provision than it 
would be t<> go ahead with the buildinj; 
of the walks. 

As a rule the property owners do not 
take advantage of the opportunity to 
build their own sidewalks, preferring 
to have the work done by the city, 
•under the direction of a competent in- 
spector. The average property owners 
know very little about timber, and u is 
claimed that very little is saved by in- 
dividual building. , 

Last year a great deal of sidewalk 
tiuilt bv the property owners during the 
30-day period at a considerable saving, 
for the vfusf the city's finances 

were not in 1 condition as this 

year, and the contractors had to wait 
for their money. For that reason they 
charged more. 

In connection with the personal in- 
jury suits that have been filed against 
the cltv. there is a 4-months-old child 
that haa a claim of $250 again<3t the cUy 
on account of a defective walk. This 
young claimant's name is Sif Sigurdson. 
On May 1 ' his mother was carrying iilm 
along East Fifth street, near ICiirbth 
avenue. The sidewalk was loose, and a 
■board trlpp«"d the mother. The child 
M-as thrown some distance, breaking his 
leg. Thlsi is the youngest person 'hat 
has ever sued the city. 

The iirnperty owners in the outlying 
districts are still objecting to the city's 
ordering in new sidewalks while d»ock 
Is allowed to run at large. At present 
there are no poundmasters at Lakeside. 
Lester Park or at West Duluth. New 
Puluth and Fond du Lac. It Is claimed 
that cattle and horses running at 1ars;e 
«jreak the wRlkf». and the property own- 
er.*? ol).iect to paying for new walks un- 
til some satisfa.^tory arrangement ia 
made in regard to poundmasters.

When you find yourself say- 
ing: "pretty well, thank you, 
but not very strong;" you are 
likely to be, as you say, "pretty 
well;" but getting no good of 
your food. 

If you have money and lei- 
iure, take a vacation ; the doc- 
tor calls it "a change." Which 
is good. 

Almost as good is Scott'i

Btead of vacation. With it is 
l>etter yet ! the doctor is right. 

We'll aeod you a little to try, it you 

be located and made to contribute to their 
support. . ^. , 

A large part of the destitution that 
causes tht» necessity for county aid comes 
from deserteil wives, and It Is expected 
that energetic measures toward bringing 
back tht»8e recreant husbands will largely 
reduce the poor expenses. 

The board also took action on hospital 
cn.'ses that will help to reduce the ex- 
penses. I'nder present arransv^monis 
when a person without means becomes 111 
or Iniured he goes to the hospital and 
the countv pays the bill. That Is the end 
of It. From now on such persona will t>e

employer for the expenses resulting from 
his hospital care, and It Is believed thai 
in many cases the county will be relmr- 
bursed. , ^ . .

City Required to Settle 

C. J. Frederickson's 


C. J. Frederlckson won his mandamus 
proceedings asainat City Treasurer Voss 
to compel him to pay a judgment of 
$.H343.24 obtained In district court some time 
ago for work on the I.a.kewood pumping 
station. The c.ise camv up before Judge 
Cant on an application for a writ of 
mandamus compelling the treasury to 
pay the Judgment, and yesterday after- 
noon, after the hearing. Judge Cant 
granted the writ. He also granted the 
city a stay of two days. .^ . « 

When the question of paying the judg- 
ment came up before the city council 
that body passed a resolution reoulrlng 
Frcdprlck.son to furnish releases for all 
labor and materials which had been u.sed 
on the contract. The wordlnp of the re- 
quirements was so involved that Fred- 
erlckson could not comply. !>o he did not. 
The treasurer refused to pay the judg- 
ment without a pnper warrant from tno 
council, claiming that the charter re- 
quired this. Frederlckson began the man- 
damus proceedings, claiming that the 
charter permitted payments of judgments 
uniler the general law, and Judge Cant 
decWed In his favor. 


Granulated or shredded: 10 cents «t all grocers. 

Governor Van Sant Is understood to 
have given the intimation that he will 
take no action with reference to the ap- 
pointment of a member of the state 
board of grain appeals until July 15. 
This means that the fight over the ap- 
pointment will continue with more or 
less bitterness until that time and that 
the friends of each will bring every 
power they can control to bear on the 
chief executive. 

The tight between A. H. Smith and 
Edward Pugh is almost as bitter as 
was that between Wllllana Getty and Q. 
FVed Stevens for the purveyor general- 
ship. Mr. Smith la backed by the antl- 
WiUcuts faction. He has other sup- 
port in very large quantities, but his 
political strength comes mainly from 
that quarter, not that he was very 
strongly arrayed with that faction In 
political contests, but that he is oppos- 
ing a man who was strongly identified 
with the political machine manipulated 
by Mr. WlUcuts. There wlU n»jv?r be 
any conciliatory policy between these 
factions If present .sentlm«nt holds out 
for th« opposition to the Willcuts fac- 
tion is not content to let the latter 
have anything at all If It can be helped, 
that is. anything more than a fe^* un-

department. They say that Willcuts 
and his followers have no love for Van 
Sant and that they should be shov/n no 
consideration. The charge Is made 
that they are even now plotting to get 
the nomination for Collins a year from 
now. The Willcuts men, however, 
scorn this charge. 

To a man up a tr^ It appears that 
Van Sant may conclude that he has 
recognized the antl-Wlllcuts faction 
pretty well and that It would be good 
politics to give the other fellows a 
little something. Mr. Smith's danger 
Ilea in the possibility that the governor 
may take this view of It. He has an 
enormous petition, the board of trade 
has taken up his cause and altogether 
h« has about the strongest endorse- 
ment of any man who has come before 
the governor for office. All that may 
be swept away, however, when It comes 
to a question of political expediency. 

Those who have taken acme hand In 
the fight are convinced that there is 
much truth In the statement that Gov- 
ernor Van Sant Is to at least some ex- 
tent committed to Mr. Pugh by reason 
of the fact that his father, Repre.senta- 
tlve Pugh, did much toward killing the 
bill to take the appointment of the 
members of the board of appeal from 
the hands of the railroad and ware- 
house commission. It Is understood 
that he gave the governor to di»tlnctly 
understand at the time that he ex- 
pected value received and that this is 
the return ho Is claiming. 

Almost everybody who reads the news- 
papers Is stire to know of the wonderful 
cures made by Dr. 
Kilmer's Swamp-Root, 
the great kidney, liver 
and bladder remedy. 

It is the great medi- 
cal triumph of the nine- 
teenth century; dis- 
_ covered after years of 
^,_Mlll)ll scientific research by 
i^*\g Dr. Kilmer, the emi- 
' nent kidney and blad- 
der specialist, and is 
wonderfully successful in promptly curing 
lame back, kidney, bladder, uric acid trou- 
bles and Brlght's Disease, which is the worst 
form of kidney trouble. 

Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root Is not rec- 
ommended for everything but if you have kid- 
ney, liver or bladder trouble it will be found 
just the remedy you need. 1 1 has been tested 
In so many ways, in hospital work, in private 
practice, among the helpless too poor to pur- 
chase relief and has proved so successful in 
every case that a special arrangement has 
been mads by which &1I readers of this paper 
who have not already tried it, may have a

telling more ab««t Swamp-Root and how to

Will Take the Northern 

Line Saturday at New 


From Havana, Cuba, to Duluih, Is a 
long cry. and a longer trip by water, but 
that Is practically the trip the steamship 
Miami, late of the Peninsular and Occi- 
dental Steamship company, and now of 
the Great Northern railway Uno. will 
make beiwetu now and June is. 

Perhaps this Is not quite right, either. 
As a matt'U- ot fact, the Miami Is now m 
the Newport .News dry dock. getting 
fresheneo up for service this summer be- 
tween Duluth and Mackinac isl.tnd. as 
the ll..,ake Superior ship of the Northern 
Steamship ei)mpany, but she has been In 
service all winter between Miami, Fla., 
and Nassau. B. I., and before that be- 
tween Miami and Havana, so that when 
Havana is mentioned as a starting point 
It means the point farthest from Duluth 
she has touched. ^ ^ . . _ 

AS everybody knows, the steamships 
North West and North Lanid, the white 
queens of the great lakes, will l>e in ser- 
vice this summer between Chicago and 
Buffalo, Instead of between Duluth and 
Buffalo and the Miami will connect »vith 
ihem at Mackinac to and from Chicago 
and Buffalo for Duluth. The Miami Is 
a beautiful ocean ship with superb cabins 
and staterooms and is well worthy a i>lace 
in the line with the "Wi»st" and •T..and.' 
She was built bv President H. M. 1< la«ler 
Of the Florida l-^asi Coast road and she is 
a"< fast as a hound. Her schedu.e of 300 
miles between L>uluth and Mackinac Is 
to be made at a lively clip and she can set 
a pace for the best of them 

On Saturday of this week the Ml.iml will 
be formallv turned over to the Northern 
Steamship company In New York harbor 
snd she will then set out on her lonrf trip 
UP the Atlantic coast to Newfountlland 
UP the St. I-iwr»nce. past Queb.»c and

An Office In Ohio That 

No One Will 


Akron. Ohio, May 30.-MaJ. C. N. Rus- 
sell, of Cuyahoga Falls, Is endeavoring 
to find some competent man who is willing 
to accept a position paying frcm t70U to 
inm a ytar. He has offered the posillan 
to fifteen difterenl men, all of whom have 
refused to accept. They have dechnod 
the appointment with a promptness that 
brooked no contradiction. 

The office of justice of the peace was 
recently maile vacant by the death of 
Squire John H.*Rosemond, who liad seve- 
ral months to serve before the expiration 
of his term. While holding the position 
he was stilcken with paralysis. His death 
occurred a month ago. The mayor is re- 
quired by law to fill the jdace by appoint- 
ment. "The peculiar spectacle of a POjsl- 
tlon, espectaliv one that pays so well for 
so little work, vainly .-seeking a man to 
nil It has caused a great deal of com- 
ment. , , , 

Now the cause of the refusals has been 
apparent. The office Is bellevetl ;o carry 
with It a hoodoo that frightens away those 
who would otherwise accept the appoint- 
ment The last four who have held the 
iMJsltlon have died while 8er^^^g their 
term. Another was forced to resign on 
account of 111 health after he had served 
less than a term. All had bee.n In ko.-kI 
health when they were elected to the jus- 
tice's bench. Some of those who have 
declined have admitted that they feared 
the ill luck which would folloy. Mayor 
Russell said: .. , . , 

"I dislike the responstjjillty of appoint- 
ing? any one to the position, but the vil- 
lage must have a justice If I can find one 
who Is willluK to accept It." 

Jacksonville.Tll.. May 30.— The confessdon 
of William Ferguson, that he carried a 
box of poisoned candy to Dr. J. S. Barnes 
in the Insane hospital at the request of 
Mrs. Mamie Barnes, the wife, and Mrs. 
Maxy MoWllllams, the mother-in-law of 
the victim, seems. In the opinion of the 
state's attorney and other offlcltls, to 
dotinltely point to the gu41ty parties. And, 
as they allege, there Is a man in the case. 
He is the one whom Mrs. Barnes Is said to 
love, and on whose ai-count she is alleged 
to have desired a divorce from Barnes. He 
is also said to be wealthy, and it is hinted 
that the expenses of Ferguson, after his 
parole from the Chester penitentiary, 
were paJd by him. His name is said by 
the sheriff to be John Pratt. 

In the theory of the state the colored 
man, Ferguson, who has made a confes- 
sion Implicating the women directly In 
the crime, was a mere tool. There is no 
reason apparent why Ferguson should 
want the insirve man out of the way. In 
the case of Mrs. Barnes and Mrs. Will- 
lams, however, things were dffferent. The 
prosecution Is said to be in possession ot 
eWdence tending to show that Mrs. Barnes 
wanted to marry a second time if she 
could get rid of Barnes. 

In regard to the anxiety of Mrs. Barnes 
to be freed from the marital ties which 
bound hej- to her insane husband, Mrs. 
Dale C Kelley, of Montlce'.io. a sister of 
the dead man, told a repre.sentatlve of 
the prosecution Chat some months ago 
Mrs. McWIlltajns. the mother of Mrs. 
Barnes, made a most significant statement 
while visiting In Montlcello. In the course 
of conversation she .said: 

"You know. Mamie Is engaged to l>e 
married, and .she Is going to marry well. 

"How can she get married while Joe Is 
alive?" someone asked, referring to the 
unfortunate in the insane asylum. ^ 

"Oh, she will get a divorce from him, 
Mrs. McWlUlams Is reported to have an- 

"Tony" Gilmer, a Quincy attorney, whlic 
talking to a detective. Is said to have re- 

"Mrs. Barnes came to me some time ago 
and asked mo to look up the law and see 
in wWch state or territory she could get a 
divorce from an Insane man." 

There are other clews which are being 
followed up. One of them, the jwllce say, 
has to do with the friendship of John 
Pratt and Mrs Barnes. Pratt is a Quincy 
man, 60 years of age. connected with a 
telephone company. 

The colored prisoner. Ferguson, has said 
in .<*o many words: 

"Mamie loved Pratt and Pratt loved Ma- 
mie enough to die for her." 

The theory of the prosecution Is that 
Mrs McWUllams. the mother-in-law of 
the Insane man, was ambitions for her 
daughter to make a wealthy marriage. To 
do this It was lmi>eratlve that Dr. Barnes 
be ffot out of Uie way. The law not i>er- 
mlttlng divorce for Insanity. It Is supposed 
that the plot which resulted in his death 
was hatched. , . _ 

The officials have the letter and Its en- 
velope which secureil the admission of the 
negro Forguon to the Insane patient. The 
letter is said to be In Mrs. McWilllam s 
handwriting, and Is slgne<l with the for- 
mer name of Mrs. Kelley, Dr. Barnes sis- 
ter in Monttcello. The envelope is said to 
be in Mrs. Biirnes" handwriting. 

The officers also have bits of the candy, 
and they have the strychnine found on the 
floor, as well as the contents of the aead 
man's stomach. They have the confes- 
sion of Ferguson that Mrs. Barnes asked 
him to go to Jacksonville to take "a few 
knick-knacks" to Joe, as she had to go to 
iMldna. Mo., on a nursing cas.-. They 
have a letter written to Mrs. Barnes at 
Edlna by Mrs. McWlIli.ams at Qnlncy, In- 
closing a newspaper clipping In which the 
flrat hint of foul play was made, but mak- 
ing no reference to the su.s.piclons of the 
authorities against Mrs. Barnes. 

The letter stating that the mother 
wished to "prepare her for what Is 
ing" and begging her to "brace up. an<l 
saying "we know we are Innocent, al- 
though no charges haxl been made against 
them They have many other bits and 
scrai>8 of evidence which are rapidly 
being pieced together and woven Into a 
continuous story, which will soon be sub- 
mitted to a jury, in what promises to be 
a most sensational t rial.

Newport Newa. Va.. May 30.— An autopsy 
In the case of Abel Wolf. Indiana stu- 
dent at Hampton normal school, who died 
Sunday from the effects of a fall received 
from a bicycle a year ago. disclosed the 
fact that the boy's stomach had nene- 
trated his left lung, and the two organs 
had become fast joined. „„ v.„n 

The post mortem examination was held 
at the Hampton normal and agricultural 
Institute, and the discovery amazed the 
surgeons. When Wolf sustained the acci- 
dent a year ago he was riding his wheel. 
He came Into collision with a cart, the 
shaft of which struck htm In the side H«

aoparently recovered from the accident. 

The examination showed that his stom- 
ach had In some Inexplicable manner 
been forced upward through the dia-

became imbedded, and in time the two or- 
eans grew together. Several days ago 
Wolf was taken suddenly 111. His case 
baffled the phvslclans. His death also 
surprised them until the post mortem 
examination was made.

Aft.r another selection from the 
quartet, the address -f the day was 
delivered by Rev. Harry \V. Knowles of 
Grace Methodist ctiurch. 

Mr. Knowles. in his introduction, re- 
ferred to the institution of 
day, and said that Gen. Logan, he te- 
lieved. had the honor of being its pro- 
moter. "May It never cea^e to be

tion and redemption continue.' 

He referred briefly to Minn 
part in the war. but said that tht- mrt-.- 
irig tLtlay was to honor no one part it 
that great army, but the G. A. R- «» a 
whole, and added: "And we will not

•I •spttik today as an American to 
Americani!. This is not the time'n>r 
the place to allow personal opinions or 
sectional interests to interfere with the 
memories and prior purposes of this 
hour, dedicated to the memory of the 
immortal dead, and the honor of the 
noble remnant of the Grand Army of 
the Republic. When the nation's life 
was at stake all other conslderati.>ns 
were forgotten in the one great pasision 
and determined purpose— the preserva- 
tion of the Union and the extension of 
fr«'edom to all who live beneath the oM 
flag. This is one of the great days -f 
our national life. It recalls the heroi.-m 
of men and women, in whose hearts the 
i,]^■■li.• « hich \vert» conceived at Con'-ord 
:,r !-),. 1 at Valley Forge, became 

th. o..-, o->ii"'i "f the first republic of 
the worbl \v < cannot permit these 
ideals to ptrish. Let them cease to be 
the hidden manna of our youth's I'fe 
and the day would come when Llncoln'is 
wish would be an Illusion of the past, 
and this "government of the people, by 
Us. people, for the people' would porlsh 
from the face of the earth. Never let 
this day be perverted or diverted, clth-^r 
by the greed of commerce nor the lust 
of low pleasure, from its original In- 
ttatlon while Old Glory floats to the air 
and light of God's sky. On this day we 
may well forget for a time the i)etty 
details of life and the foibles of char- 
acter which belong to common human- 
itv. and dwell upon the higher thlngt? 
which that same humanity has accom- 
plished; a.ssured that. In what it has 
done we have the pledge of the higher 
things it will yet do. as it moves irre- 
sistibly and grandly to its divinely ap- 
jointeil goal. Let the past give us faith 
for the future. The Grand Army of the 
Republic bids us look back with grati- 
tude and to the future with hope. 

•There are four appeals to our rever- 
ent chivalry which I trust wilt never 
appeal in vain to our national con- 
sciences. The first Is the supreme God. 
In whom aur fathers trusted, and whom 
we have not forgotten as some have 
1 done. He Is still the one in whom wo 
i When the Grand Army of the 
j Retiublic faced the thunder of battle- 
such battles as no men ever faced— it 
' was in "the supreme faith that the God 
of battles was with them. May we never 
ctase to worship and acknowledge the 
living and eternal God. If we do. we 

"Holy womanhood is the next appeal 
to our reverence. It has been said that 
America is the paradise of women. The 
American is foremost in his devotion to 
and his defense of women. .American 
manho:»d reverences the fifth law on 
which a nation's duration depends. It 
is the woman behind the man which has 
given us that man behind the gun wt.o 
has awakened the respect and admira- 
tion of the world for American valor and 

"Our flag Is the third appeal to our 
reverence. The old fiag whlcfi. from Its 
first flutter to the winds of God. has 
never been lowettd to a foreign foe. and 
which now shelters beneath Its protect- 
ing folds peoples from Cuba to Canada 
and from the Atlantic to the gateway of 
the Pacific. 7000 miles from the Gulden 
Gate: has never had its honor or its In- 
tention successfully questioned. That 
flag Is our pride and the hope of all na- 
tions who know not but long for our 
Ideals of freedom. Is as far beyond the 
petty spleen of those little creatures who 
attemi^t to defame it and Its defenders 
as God's throne Is above and beyond the 
noor fcol who moves like a bat 
the snlendors of Oods creation. Wan^plf 
one Af God's creatures, and yet |Pec1;tres 
there Is no God. ' - 

•Flnallvv the Grand Army of Jtfi Re- 
public appeals to our reverence. There 
never was an army like It. The »tory of 
its daring, its devotion. Its que ..chless 
courage. Its privations, its patience un- 
der defeats which would Ciave broken 
the spirit of any other army, for they 
fought on when by the laws of war thev 
should have given up. Candor comj>el3 
1 us to add t^.at only the Confederates 
i have ever sliown Uke dauntless d«V3- 

Mr. Knowles then reviewed briefly the 
history of the conflict, the dark days 
when the North was In gloom and doubt, 
the valiant achievements of the army, 
the terrible cost of the war. the graves 
filled with brave sons of the reiiubllc, 

"Is it any wonder," he continued, 
"that we have a Memorial day In which 
to revive the memories of those fateful 
days and to pay worthy tribute to the 
gallant remnant of the onc€ mighty 
Grand Armv of the Republic? Is It un- 
worthy of patriotic people to teach the 
rising generations the story of that 
famous army, that they shall ever rev- 
erence the flag and love their country, 
and, forgetting not God, be ready ever- 
more to T)ay the same price for a free 
and united country the Grand Army of 
the Republic once paid without reserve? 
May God, womanhood, the flag and the 
Grand Army of the Republic never fall 
to command the reverence and re-soect 
of all true Americans. For these feel- 
ings and this faith create the sentiment 
which guarantees the perpetuation of 
our institutions." 

There are four days, said the speaker, 
which should ever remain on the calen- 
dar of holy days. The first Is the Sab- 
bath -day. which commemorates the 
..Vigln of the democracy of faith or the 
faith which gave us all we dream of 
when we think of theocratic democrac>. 
The second Is the anniversary of 
Christ's nativity, the day which reminds 
us of the regard which God has for th? 
humblest child and its mother. The third 
Is the glorious Easter of Immortal hop?, 
reminding us that dejith Is not the end of 
things. The fourth is this day of the 
Grand Army of the Republic. Memorial 
and Decoration day. the nation f jno"^"; 
ing day. He said he noted with great 
pain the drift on the part of t"«^n]an>; 
to make this a holiday. It is not a time 
for frlv(dous pleasures. , „ ^„ 

"The Grand Army of the HeP"j'''^J^^- 
minds us of the vital principles %\hicli 
they gave their lives to preserve and 
for which we shall ever need intelli- 
gent, devoted and wicrificlng ciliren- 
ship. First is the rights of God. In 
God we trust is not yet a myth. We 
believe in the rights of God as pnor to 
all. and the base of all human rights 
This carries that expansion of which 
the Christian missionary is the type, i 
hope 1 vMU not offend when I express 
mv Implicit belief In the responsible 
duty of this people to be the evange 
of religious and civil liberty to all 
peoples. I do not pretend to say in 
what way this mission Is to be carried 
out God will reveal that In his time 
and way. But I think we have hints 
of the wav since 1900. And without 
knowing it that purging of our sin by 
the sacrifice of the civil war was the 
preliminary move divine for this na- 
tion's apostolic ordination to world 
wide civil evangelization. Pekln it a 
later indication of our exalted mission 
because we put first the rights of God 
in our constitution and faith. 

The Grand Army of the Republic 
stands, too. for the rights of the nation 
over any fraction thereof. In the 
struggles toward the perfect political 
balance we swing between the ex- 
tremes of individualism and com- 
munism. The larger Interpretation of 
this opposition of the political poles Is 
nat'ion vs. state rights. We settled 
that question in the contest of •60.-'. 
Washington .settled the rights of the 
states and the individuals. Lincoln 
.settled the rights of the nation and of 
men. No state has rights which con- 
flict with the liarmony and welfare of 
the nation. An the nation must pro- 
tect the rights of the state and indi- 
vidual. These are fundamentals of 
our government. , ^ ^ 

"Thirdly, the Grand Army of the Re- 
public staiids for the rights of the state 
and the individual. It stands for per- 
sonal freedom limited only by the 
unity of the nation." 

After dwelling upon thoughts con- 
cerning the moral drift of the people, 
etc Mr. Knowles concluded as follows: 
"Finally, there Is the first thing for 
which. I think, the G. A. R. stand.s. It 
is the hope of the future. There are 
grave changes taking place, as the 
natural incident to International rela- 
tions, which our fathers knew not of 
and could not foresee. The perils and 
privilege* and freedom cannot be di- 
vorced. Unlver.««al suffmge will nftt be 
reached by some flowery road. Wc .ahall 
reach our crowning as we have leached 
our present status, by the way of the 
Cross. Only by trusting a people with 
government can they come at last to 
perfect self-government. There are 
brain heart, conscience *and courage 
vufflcient in the nation to successfully, 
and at last righteously, settle all the 
problems which must be met and solved 
a« we work out our destiny among the 
peoples of the earth. There will oe, 
there must be, revisions and, perhaps, 
utter rejection of the old creeds, re- 
Jigloue. political. Industrial and social. 
"Ive are now with our faces toward the 
better country and the new Jerusalem. 
Have no fears as to the ultimate. The 
hosts are led hv the Grand Army of the 
Republic at whose front waves the 
banner with the strange device. I see

Young Woman's Labor All 
For Naught. 

There Is a story to the effect that a I 
certain young married woman living 
near the Seventh avenue Incline rail- 
way was out on the housetop with her 
kodak during the hilltop fire the other 
day and was busy for about an hour 
taking pictures of the fire above and 
the curious crowds below. When the 
car broke loose at the top of the hill and 
came like a blazing streak down the 
Incline, she was in ecstacy over the 
sight and bravely stayed on top of t tie 
house and made two exposures while 
the car was dashing down the steep in- 
cline So pleased was the lady with 
her efforts that she could not forbear 
telling all of her friends of the pictures 
that she had t.aken and in her enthu- 
siasm promised to give them all rei)ro- 
ductlons of the thrilling sights. That 
same day she developed the films and 
found blanks in every case. She nad 
forgotten in her excitement to adjust 
some part of the kodak mechanism that 
opened the shutter and with all her 
trouble not an exposure had been made. 
Just now she is having an embarrass- 
ing time explaining to her friends, to 
whom she promised pictures, "how it 
happened." ' 

For a Day's Outing. 

A party of Duluthians and their fami- 
lies left this morning over the 5outh 
Shore road for MlMbrook, thtL station 
at Pike lake. Just below Iron River. It 
is a delightful locality to spend the 
d'ay with a pretty sheet of water, boats 
and good fishing. Mlllbrook can be 
reached easily by family parties who 
wish to go out for a day's outing, the 
train leaving the Union depot at S 
o'clock in the morning and returning 
at 8 o'clock In the evening. 

A daylight burglary— bold and In- 
gneiuos-^ccurred yesterday afternoon. 
The home of Frederick W. Eva, 1613 
Jefferson street, was prowled and con- 
siderably jewelry and a little money 
stolen. The value of the missing prop- 
erty has not been ascertained. The 
police believe the work to have been 
that of a professional house prowler. 

The burglary occurred In the after- 
noon between 3 and 5 o'clock. Neighbors 
,and others were constantly around the 
house, and yet the thief entered and 
got away unobserved. Mrs. Eva was 
down town shopping. 

A man who is under suspicion was 
seen loafing around the neighborhood 
most of the day. He was evidently 
waiting for some person to leave a 
house. It Is believed that he saw Mrs. 
Eva start down town at 3 o'clock and 
got into the house immediately. 

The front door was opened with a 
skeleton key. Onco inside the thief had 
the house to himself and he apparently 
took his time going through it. Each 
room showed evidence of his presence, 
but he seemed to want only jewelry and 
money as he passed over other valu- 
ables, and seceral pieces of jewelry 
with a monogram on. 

In Mr.s. Eva's room the thief secured 
a number of valuable rings and a 
brooch. He found a little money and 
in searching for more even went to the 
extent of ripping open the mattress on 
the bed. 

After going through the house the 
burglar left unobserved and did not 
trouble himself about locking the door. 
This is the first house prowling that 
has been done In Duluth .since the police 
broke up the Grlflfin gang a year ago. 
Incidentally it Is about the smoothest 
bit of prowling that has come to the no- 
tice of the police department in recent 

Notwithstanding the number of people 
that rejnember seeing a man lying 
about under trees in the neighborhood 
all day. there are very few that can give 
a good description of him.

Opening Concert at the High 

A large and appredatisve audience was 
present at the May Musical festival held 
at the High School assembly hall last 
evening, and the only drawl>ack to the 
whole affair was the at>sence of two of the 
performers, Mrs. Marie Geist-Erd and 
E. W. Prophet. Mrs. E:rd was ill and 
consequentlv was unable to play the cello 
solo which was looked forward to witn 
so much pleasure. Miss Virginia Willcuts 
accompanied the orchestra. 

Mr Prophet's absence made It Impossi- 
ble to sing the Tonntng soixg cycle in its 
entiretv. Mrs. Berryman, Miss Hector 
and Mr Tyler wing three of the twelve 
numbers very acceptably. An endeavor 
will be made to -have the cycle given to- 
morrow. . „„ . ^^ .. ,

R. R. Graetz Charged With 

Being One By 


C. p. Maglnnis has filed an affidavit 
in the United States land office charg- 
ing R. R. Graetz, an explorer, who hails 
from Duluth, with being a professional 
contestor. Mr. Maginnis charges that 
he makes contesting claims a business 
and does it for speculative purposes 
and m the of third Parties and 
that this is contrary to the land la^^s 
of the country. He tiles with his atn- 
davit proof of eighteen contests insti- 
tuted by Graetz in the past nine years 
Mr. Maginnis endeavored to, e^^er 160 
acres of land as assignee of S. E. Kiaa 
and M R. Stebbina. His application 
conflicted with that of J. W Murray, 
but the latter subsequently lost through 
a contest brought by Graetz. Mr. Ma- 
ginnis then sought to enter the and 
bv right of his previous application, 
which was in conflict. Graetz claimed 
the right to enter by reason of his con- 
test of Murrays' entry. Mr. Maginni.s 
thereupon filed the affidavit mentioned 
and claims that Graetz is not acting for 
himself, but for third parties. He asks 

a hearing at which he will endeavor to

she has just made a contract with MaJ.

County Authorities Are 

Puzzled Over Detention 

of Insane. 

A couple of laws passed by the last leg- 
islature have put the county authorities 
Into something of a quandry as to what 
they are to do with Insane cases that 
come up. Luckily there have been none 
lately, so the matter has not been brought 
to a test, but when a case oome<5 up it 
will have to settle some way. and the 
authorities are not certain what will be 

*In*'the past, when information of Insan- 
Itv has been liled against an Individual 
who was not tit to run at large, It has 
been the custom to put the patient in 
jail pending an examlnaii<jn. "This has 
seemed to be the best way out of the 
trouble as there was no other place con- 
venient'. But the legislature last w-in- 
tc-r passed a law prohibiting this. tor 
sentimental reason.s It was tht>ught Im- 
proper to place Insane patients in pris- 
on? so Chapter 2W of the laws of l«;'l P-f" 
hlblts placing patients who are subject to 
physical restraint by virtue of any infor- 
mation of insanity in any public Jail or 
orison except in case of absolute neces.sjty 
certified in wTiting by the probate court. 

The law requires that patients shall Jbe 
placed in a hospHal, and If there Is no 
hospital at hand, a private dwell ng shall 
be UPfd. The hospitals. It is said do not 
care to handle insane cases, and unless 
they have necessary preparations their 
objections are founded upon good reasons. 
AS to private dwellings It has yet to bo 
determined whether there are any owners 
of private dwellings that will care to take 

'"At"lnrr^.'*no such place haa yet been 
found. As stated, there have hee" no n- 
sance cases In some time, so the matter 
^s not been brought to Uie pinch. The 
authorities would Ifke very much to know 
what to *> with the next inesane cases 
that come to hand. . , . 

Another matter that was acted upon by 
the legislature was the detention of pa- 
tients whose cases may be doubtful. Often 
information of insanity is led against a 
l>ersons whose sanity cannot be deter- 
mined on the first examination, and whom 
t is necessary to confine for a time In 
thp natt sucli cases have been kept In 
thi iall but this will be possible no longer

Charles Voorhees Throws 

Himself Under Engine 

at Swan River. 

Charles Voorhees committed suicide 
by throwing himself under the engine ot 
a special train on the Eastern Minne- 
sota road near Swan River on Tuesday 
afternoan. The head was severed from" 
the body. The special train was carrying 
Vice President D. M. Philbin on a tour 
of inspection of the line. When the train 
was approaching ttie crossing near 
Swan River, the conductor saw a man 
running toward the engine, and before 
he could reach the bell cord to stip the 
train, the man lay down on the rail and 
was ground beneath the \\1heels. The 
train was stopped as quickly as possibli 
and the crew, together with Mr. Philbin. 
went back and picked up the remain.? 
and took them on board the special. 

A section crew was working near the 
scene nf the tragedy, and Itie fjreman 
told the train crew that when thev, 
came to work In the afternoon Voor- 
hees was seen near the crossing and 
his purse and gold watch were lyini. 
on a Plank near the track, where tl-ev 
were nicked up by the fireman after 
Voorhees had been killed. The fore- 
man asked him why he left his money 
and watch lying around like that, and 
V3ci6iees replied that It was "just for 

fun-" . ,, . 

A letter, postmarked at Saginaw, 

Mich., was found on the body. It was 
addressed to 'Dear Papa" and signed 
"Lizzie." It Is said that about four 
vears ago Voorhees was married at Sag- 
inaw to a widow who has two sons and 
a daughter The sens are W3rking on a

been working during the past two or 
tCiree years for the Swan River Lumber 



Gen. Bonnal Indulges In a 
Little Hot Air. 

Berlin May 30.— To the correspondent 
of the Associated Press, Gen. Bonnal, 
director of the French war school, •ex- 
pressed his delight at the splendid re- 
ception accorded the French offic.'rs by 
Emperor William and his army at the 
interesting military sights witne.ssed. 
He said: "I have been astonished at 
the perfectly frank and soldier-like 
manner and speech of the emperor Re- 
peatedly the emperor emphasized his 
gladness because the Germans and 
French fought shoulder to shoulder ;e- 
cently. not only in China, but In Wefit 
Africa, thus learning to mutually, 
esteem each other." 

The emperor also said to Gen. Bonuil 
vestprday i 

"When you return to France tell yoiir. 
countrymen- that here nothing is f>^lt 
but sympathy and respect 'or f ranee. 

Gen Bonnal repeatedly said to hla 
majesty: "I am not a diplomatic or a 
political general." • 

Regarding the German army, Oen, 
Bonnal said: "Neither the German noR 
the French army is the same as in l«7t>.; 
There have been great improvements 
in both. Yet each might learn inucti 
from the other. Parades, for poldterp. 
are inspiring spectacles, especlalUjf 
they are perfectly drilled, as the uer- 
mans. But battles are not won by pa.-« 
rades." »

Placing flowers on the graves of sol- 
diers is an ancient custom. It la related 
that on the birthday of Alexander the 
Great certain Greeks visited his mauso- 
leum and placed flowera on the thresh- 
old. Planting flowers on graves was a 
cu.stotn In Europe for many centuries. 
Ti> honor the dead is a natural instinct 
of the living, and the expre-^sion of the 
public s. Muw of Memorial day is a nian- 
ifes^taliun of that sentiment. This day 
WHS apifointed as a day of mourning for 
and ri.rnniemoration of the soldiers who 
challenged the admiration of their con- 
tun porari*'s by their dl.xdain of death 
for the glory of the TepobHc. It was to 
be an occasion for the decoration of 
graves, and for the gathering of citizens 
to hear recounted tie .i;lorious dejds 
and virtues of the tirave men who fell in 
the Union cause. This was the feeling 
that animated Gen. John A. Logan, 
then comraander-ip-chief of the Grand 
Army of the Republic when, in 1869, he 
announced May 30 as the day on which 
the graves of soldiers should be decor- 
ated. It is a beautiful custom, and It 
will .survive as long as American liea:-t3 
are kept warm l>y glorioU'S memories, 
although there has lieen a growing ten- 
dency to forget the special significance 
of th- il'iv and to desecrate it by out- 
dOM and aniustmenta. 

It is with a view of changing this 
tendency that the members of the O, A. 
Ii. have inaugurated the custom of 
visiting the puijlic schools on the Friday 
preceding Alemorial day and addre^^^.-dng 
the childien on the national glory and 
the demands of patriotism. All will

previous time during the forty >care 
since the war has* there been le.^s feel- 
ing between different .«ectiona of 'he 
country. Bitter memories have been 
effaced, the tears of regret have been 
wiped away, and the whole c-untry. 
North and South, staiids united beneath 
the starry Imnner. It is a happy omen 
of the perpetuation of the republic. 


One of the wonderful productions of 
the recent session of the Minnesota 
legislature was a law reiuiring the an- 
nual election of th^ ilii-ctors of puidic 
libraries. In citie.s with les.s than 50.000 
Inhabitants. Fortunately Duluth does 
not come under this provision. l)Ut. with 
the exception of the Twin Cities and 
Duluth. all the cities and villages of ihe 
state do. The act amends section 1426 
of the revised statutes, under .vhioh of the public libraries in the *,ta»e 
were organised. The law provides that 
where any city or village has estab- 
lished and maintained a library under 
this act, due notice shall l)e given to the 
voters of the city or village to meet on 
the third Saturday of July following 
the passage of the law. and elect nine 
directors by ballot for the government 
of the library. Three of the directors 
.=hall serve for one year, three for fvo 
years and three for three years, and 
three shall be eleited annually th e- 
after. on the thiid .Saturday of July. It 
says that the polls shall be open for one 

"Without doubt this is the most ab- 
surd enactment of the last legislature. 
There are many objections to the law, 
and hardly one good feature. The ab- 
.=!urdity of the thing i« more apparent 
wb.n a ( ity like Winona or St. Cloud is 
taken into con.Hlderatlon. The law says 
that the polls shall lie ojien for one 
hour. A.-'o;-,ling to the iTf-int system 
it is possible to receive and cjunt one 
vote per minute. That would enable 
s.irne sixty people to vote at each poll- 
ing place, with the result that hundreds 
of people would not have an oppor- 
tunity to vote at all, no matter how 
much they wanted to. Then there is 
nothing in the law. expressed or implied, 
that legislates the present library 
boards in tbc \ :m;ous cities out of office, 
or which would Indicate that the exist- 
ing iKiard.s. duly elected and quallfled. 
would be unceremoniously bounced 
upon the election of the new directors. 
There are other features of tlje law 
equally bad. but the<se illustrations are 
sutticlent to show what an absurd pro- 
duction it Is. It is said that the law was 
passed" for the esr>ecial benefit of Owa- 
tonna, but was made so broad In Its 
terms that it affects every city In the 
Btate except Minneapolis, St. Paul and 
Duluth. It is understood that the ntate 
library board will take the matter up 
with the attorney general and see. what 
cnn be done to rectify this inexcusable 
blunder made by the legislature. 


«By a votC' of l.> lu 14 the Cuban con- 
I'ention has accepted the Platt amend- 
ment with explanatory notes, based 
npon the personal assurances of the 
president and Secretary Root. The ad- 
ministration seems to be speculating in 
small margins just now. By a margm 
of one-half the Insular policy of the 
government was temporarily sustained 
by the supreme court, and ii»w by the 
casting vote of the presiding officer of 
the Cuban constitutional convention 
that Island Is placed In the line with 
Porto Rico and the Philippines as ex- 
ploiting ground for the American trust 

By this act the Cubans have placed 
themselves in the lion's mouth. Had 
they refused to accept the Platt amend- 
ment without a guarantee of free trade 
with the United States, they would have 
succeeded in placing their island on the 
high road to prosperity, but they have 
given away their inheritance for the 
empty name of Independence. So far as 
the Cubans are concerned, they have 
by this act proved themselves inca;iable 
of self government. Hi^'ing the op- 
portunity to secure a market at home 
for the island's products, they have 
thrown it away, not knowing its value. 

This action will l>e regretted by the 
people of the United Slates who appre- 
(iate the value of the sugar industries 
Of Cuba. Annexation w free trade 

would mean a saving of $15,000,000 year- 
ly to the people of this country. Trut, 
the president and Secretary- Root have 
solemnly promised the Cubans reci- 
procity. But what does that promise 
amount to? Did not the president , In 
an important state document written 
for the guidance of congrea*. J-.flare 
that it is "our plain duty" to extend 
the benefits of free trade to Porto Rico? 
And did ho not at once stultify himself 
by signing the infamous Forak«»r act? 
More than that, did he not bend tivery 
energy of the adiuinistration to secure 
a declnalon from the supreme court 
favorable to that legislative abortion? 
The Cul»ans will find, when it Is too late, 
that the promises of this administra- 
tion are not always fulfilled. 

The Cuban constitution will have to 
be submitted to the people for ratifica- 
tion. If they are wise they will reject 
it. unless some guarantee other than 
the personal \Cord of the president and 
his secretary of war is given for the 
future trade relations. The Cubans 
evidently do not understand the small - 
ness of the figure that the president 
cuts in this government. Neither do 
they appreciate the omniscience of con- 
gress. They have not read the deci- 
sion in the Downes case.

The taxation conference of ^he Na- 
tional Civic Federation, which was re- 
cently in session at Buffalo, recommend- 
ed the formati<)n of a permanent or- 
ganization for the promotion of inter- 
.state comity In taxation and tax reform. 
To this end a committee of fifteen was 
appointed to secure and distribute In- 
formation on subjects bearing upon the 
subject of taxation. Among other rec- 
ommendations made to the committee 
was one relative to the double taxation 
of property. Tliis occurs where real es- 
tate is situated in one state and securi- 
ties based on the same held In another. 
The conference recommends that In all 
such cases the tax should be levied 
where the property Is situated. 

This subject of mortgage taxation T?ie 
Herald haa heretofore discussed, holdir>g 
that In all cases where real estate is en- 
cumbered, the amount of the encum- 
brance should be deducted from the 
assessed value of the property, the 
e(|ulty being alone assessed against the 
holder of the fee. The amount .o^ the 
nnortgage should be assessed against 
the hclder thereof and made by law a 
lien upon the mortgage Interest in the 
real estate. In case the holder of the 
mortgage be a non-resident and fails to 
pay bis mortgage tax. the holder of the 
fee should be allowed to pay It and de- 
duct the amount from the interest, or, 
if necessary, the principal of the mort- 
gage. To do away with the general ob- 
jection to mortgage taxation, that the 
property Is compelled to bear a double 
burden where the evidence of Indebted- 
ness Is held In a different state from 
that wherein the property is situated, 
comity of taxation between states must 
allow a receipt from the county where 
the mortgage ia recorded showing pay- 
ment, to be a bar to assessment where 
the security is held. 

Uniform laws providing for the assess- 
ment of all mortgages where they are 
recorded would be effectual In compel- 
ling the mortgagee to pay taxes 
on his investment, and at the same time 
would relieve the owner of the fee from 
the necessity of paying a tax on what he 
does not own. California and Missouri 
have already taken up this matter with 
the most llattering results. Money 
lenders have persistently fought this 
movement to tax their securities, and 
for good reasons. In the first place, the 
mortgages on Western real estate are 
taken East and placed In vault.'? where 
they were conveniently forgotten when 
the assessor comes round, but remem- 
bered when coupons were due. Others 
having a better memory and a glimmer- 
ing of conscience remember them, but 
are careful to have them held In com- 
munities wiiere the rate of taxation is 
reduced to the minimum. There is a 
vast difference In the rate of taxation 
between a growing Western city and a 
Sleepy New England hamlet. A money 
lender holding secuiities of record in 
many Western towns might have to pay 
as high as 4 per cent on the valuation of 
his securities, while if he were allowed 
to send them East to a maiden aiuit in 
Orchard Valley, and there report them 
for taxation, he could get off with 1 per 

That a very small percentage of se- 
curities are even reported to the asses- 
sors Is proved by the difference between 
the repoi-ts of state and national banks 
of the securities they hold and the 
amounts which the assessors are able to 
gel from the individuals. Governor 
Odell of Nfw York attempted to secure 
the passage of a law To unearth these 
frauds by making the tax on all securi- 
ties payable In stamp.s, which must be 
attached to the instruments yearly ant» 
cancelled. If the stamp tax were not 
paid the Instrument became void. This 
law would have brought to light millions 
of dollars' worth of securities ifl tiie 
Empire state which have never been and 
will never be reported to the assessors. 
The measure was defeated by the Influ- 
ence of those holding taxable securities. 
The only way to reach this kind of prop- 
erty and at the same time avoid th«* 
objection of double taxation is to assess 
them where recorded. In other words, 
regard all securities based upon real 
estate in any form as an estate in realty 
and treat it accordingly. 

Mr. Guxxler. according to the Philadel- 
phia Record, was talking about his latest 
conquest. "What does she look like?' 
asked Wigwag. "Well," replied Guzzler, 
"she haa beer-colored hair, creme de 
menthe eyes and a complexion like— like 
a milk punch with an egg in It."

not .saeing. apparently, that It has adver-

(Copyright 1901. William R. Miller). 
On three different occasions M;ij. Davis 
paymaater, had stopped over night at 
Rlcardo's ranch on his way to and from 
Fort Hari>er, and on no occasion had he 
observed the slightest thing to arouse 
his suspicions. It was generally rumored 
I hat Ricardo, who was a full-blooded Mex- 
ican and had a fierce cast of countenance, 
wuis not a squafe man. That meant that 
he gave aid to hone thieves and stood In 
wifn outlaws, and that his abode fur- 
nished shelter to fugutives from Justice 
when they were hard pre.^sed. Many 
things had been spoken to the man's dis- 
credit, but nothing had l)een proved. As 
the paymaster had an escort of six men 
he cared leas for rumor than for food 
and shelter and slept as soundly as the 
lleas would permit, 

Maj. Davis was a man of 35. and a 
bachelor. He was blue-eyed, fair-haired 
and strong of limb, and on his very first 
appearance at the ranch a girl whom he 
did not even see fell in love with him. 
This was little "Coko." as the soldiers 
had nicknametl her. who was old Ricardo's 
daughter and only child by an American 
wife, who was long since dead. At this 
time she was a girl of IG, dress^nl In pic- j 
turesque garb and a dark-sklnneJ beauty. 
Besides her there was an old Mexican 
woman about the place who cocked, 
washed and did the other work. Many 
a soldier had drank the fiery pulque of 
the l>arroHnn to the landlord's daughter 
peeping from the door of the room be- 
yond, and many of the civilian hang- 
ers-on praised her eyes and hnlr and 
little hands and oflfered her marriage. 
She had a cOhtempt for the skulkd who 
were hiding from justice, and if she 
occasionally smiled at a sollier— a 

griiig.v-shft vet had that Inborn hate 
of him that no Mexican, be It man or 
woman, e^'or fairlv conquers. Noi until 
I he day Maj. Davis made his first halt 
and she got a long look at him without 
being seen In return did she whisper to 
herself: ^ . _ 

"He Is a Gringo and an ofllcer. and 1 
am onlv dirt l>ene>ath his feet, but I 
could love a man like him. I would 
even be his slave and follow him to the 
end of the earth. He has a faci wiiich 
tells of a kind heart, and he i.^ big and 
strong and brave. If my father plans 
against him I will defeat them." 

The major went away In the morning 
without having seen the girl, but when 
he came a second time he encouatercjd 
her in the public room ere she could 
reach the privacv of her own. He had 
gathereitl a bou(iuet of wild flowers as 
he walkeul beside his vehicle for the last 
mile. Big-hearted, brave-hearted men do 
this even when adone and far from Wo- 
man's Influence. They were such flowers 
as little "Coko" had umler her eyes ana 
feet for months In every year, but when 
the major lifted his hat and bowed In a 
gallant wav and presenied the bouquet 
she received It with a smile ami a thank- 
you and bore them to her room with a 
fluttering heart, it was only like the 
major to be courteous and gallant, rnd 
for the rest of the night ha never gave 
the girl a thought. Next morning &s ne 
rode away he caught a fleeting glimpse 
of her and raised his hat and smiled, and 
turning to the sergeant of his escort he 
laughingly exdaimefl; 

•if old Ricardo doesn't keep his eyes 
open that little coquette of ais will be 
smashing hearts by the wholesale and 
bringing about a lot of shooting affrays 
among ilie fellows who ride this way. 
She's on the way to become a handsome 
woman,' . , 

"And a bad one. sir. if she tak^^s a^ter 
her father." replied the sergeant, and 
there was no further conversation. 

Back In the ranch house. however, 
there were more heart flutterlngs. a good ■ 
mtiny sighs, and a feeling of blttc?rness 
at her lot. Little "Coko" had surely 
fallen In love, and as hard as .she tried 
to fight It down, and as often as sne tcld 
her.self that there was an imimssible gulf 
b<nweeTi her and that air-haired ofticer, 
she could not conquer herself nor aban- 
don all hope. Tliere came a change In 
her which both the father and tne old 
wt)man noticed and commented upon, 
but thev did not hit the key-note ns they 
speculated. The girl hud been i-eared to 
suspect, distrust and hate, and the Idea 
of her h*iarL,belng touched never ov.'cur- 
red to thenr The paymaster would not 
come agtiin for two months, and the girl 
was checking off the days and wondering 
at the slow passage of time, when she ac- 
cidentally overheard a conversation that 
dissipated her mood In a moment. Her 
father was planning with an outlaw to 
wine out the paymaster and his escort 
when thev next came and possess them- 
.selves of the sobllcrs' greenbacks. She 
heard the plot In Its entirety, and «he 
shut her teeth firmly and whispered lo 
herself: ..... ;■ *«. 

"1 will defeat It, pvon If It brings death 
to my own father. I will not do it be- It Is wrong to kill Grlngoes, but 
because It Is wrong to kill the Gringo I 
love and would die for. He does not 
know It— he cannot suspect It, but 1 will 
prove it to him. When 1 have done so, 

then—" .... . W-. 

But she dared not think of what 
might lie beyond. She watcflfd and 
waited as never before, and she planned 
as craftily as an /Apache and carried 
about with her face as unreadable as 
a stone One dav a band of ontlaw;s 
gather at Ricardo's ranch, held an hour s 
confab, and then departed to ambush 
them.selves in the mountain pass, up 
which the paymaster must come to reach 
the ranch. Two hours after they had 
deiiarted the girl sllnpetl out of the house 
and headed across the timber-covered hill 
to strike the trail below the ambush. It 
was a walk of two hours and ner path 
was rugged and full of danger. The pa y- 
nwster had always reached the ranch two 
hours after sunset, and as she stood on a 
cliff and looked down upon the trail the 
sun was lost behind the grim allls and 
she knew that the escort could not be. far 
awav After reaching the point at which 
she had struck the trail it had five miles 
yet of the rough road to traverse. 

Darkness gathered quickly aft.-r t.:r sun 
dropi.ed out of sight, and the girl started 
to descend the face of the cliff and r. ach 
the trail. She was half way down when 
a bush gave way und.-r her grasp .i no she 
fell a sheer thtriv feet ,nnd lay bruised 
and broken and seemingly HfeleBs on the 
flinty road. The escort found her thiis 
when the six troopers and the four-mule 
ambulsncp came weanly along. 

"It's Uttle 'Coko,' old Ricardo s daugh- 
ter fir,' reported the sergeant to the pay- 
master after he had dismounted and In- 
vestigated. "Yes, sir. it's her sure en- 
ough and she's evidently had a fall from 
that cHfT Was probably rambling 

around, and may have been hurt hours 
ago." . . ,, 

The paymaster was out and binding 
over the rlrl nnd bathing her facj when 
She slgheo, opened her eyes nna after 
• moment knew that the escort was 
aroimd her. Then In painful gasps she 
told of the plot and the ambu=>h. and 
as her whispers died away at List and 
the stars shone down on her dead face 
the major reverently bent and kl.ssed 
her forehead and ordered the body to be 
placed In the ambulance. Two hours 
later he arrived at the ranch with a 
forced smile on his face but with .ear 
tugging at his heart. Old Ricardo came 
out with cringing servility and b^^f n to 
speak*, but the major checked him and 
said to his nwn: « 

"TJft the bodv of the poor girl ojit with 
tender hands and Tet this old devil work 
up a tear over It If he ran. As for the 
four dead outlaws, jerk 'em out by the 
heels and dumn them Into the first hollow 
vou can find. Poor 'Coko!' I wonder how 
she came to do so nvych for us Gnngoes.

Real Estate Taxes can be paid without penalty, and to 
accommodate the public the County Treasurer s office 
will be open from 8 o'clock a. m. until 6 o'clock p. m. 

The law now allows one-half of the tax to be paid on 
or before Hay 31st, and then the other half can run until 
the end of October without any penalty, but if the first 
half is not paid by Friday, ten (10) per cent must be added 
to the whole tax Saturday morning. 

This is mwhtaty on the Treasurer and admits of no alternative.

'people are to be brought to Duluth lo

purpose of t;.-tting their trade, for in 
ithat wav ..lily will the city really get

The plan talked of is the formaflon

puints? Such a rate would bring from

the country, and it is Ijeing work'nl svu-

are doing in other places to get the 


One complaint that the m.-;. hints 
have tu make al)oul the usual run of 
excursions to DulOth Is that they are 
brought from a long distance and the 
people that come are those who are out 
for sightseeing, pure and simple, and 
will spend their money in their own 
town. All this, they say. Is well and 
good for the railroad company. t be 
hotels, restaurants and the street ruu- 
wav company that takes the 1^^"-^^^ 
almut to the points of Interest, but the 
merchants that have helped to contri- 
bute toward this entertainment feel 
that they hav .il no return. Th? 

trouble is. th. that the class of 

people that con)e hi ve on the bmg ill-s- 
tance excursions are not the people that 
are reached liy the local daily papers 
and only in those localities that the 
Duluth papers reach can the merchants 
hope to see the people become familiar 
with their advertisements and inter- 
ested in the luirgains that the .-stores 
have to offer to visitorn eomini? to ilie 
city to do shopping. 

The Duluth papers have a liberal cir- 
culation in every town and city within 
a railius of over 100 mWc?. from the head 
of the lake and it in from the people 
that read the papers an«l liecome fami- 
liar with the stores that the trade will 
come. Said one of the merchants, 
yesterday, who is Interested in the ex- 
cursion business: 

"If an excursion eouM be given under 
the au9i)lces of the busin-.^s men of 
Duluth, the papers would be Interested 
in taking up the matter, not only from a 
news standpoint, but a few days before 
the excursion was given the papers 
could get up an excursion edition to send 
out to reach every home in the towns 
from which the excursion would come. 
In this excursion e<litlon the nrverchants 
could advertiiie their bargains, taking 
the amount of space that they could af- 
ford. The people would read these 
editions with interest and come to the 
city prepared to do their trading. It 
wilt easily be -seen that this Is a busi- 
ness proposition and every merchant 
would l>e putting his money to advan- 
tage for it is through the newspapers 
that the merchant must reach the 

The idea of the merchants Is to hav 
numerous excursions from the nearby 
Wisconsin towns, the ranges, from the 
Fosston branch of the Eastern Minne- 
sota, in fact there is hardly a limit to 
the districts that could be reached. A 
business men's league could plan to 

have excursions during the season when 
merchants have the 8to<-k of goods to 
dispose of. and the excursion business 
could ha dropped during the months 
when there is iilllo trading to be tiad. 
The idea of the busines, men is not to 
work against the plans of the Dulutn 
lmi>rovement association, for they say 
that the excursions from the distant 
points are all right, and it is a good 
thing to bring the people here for a good 
time, and to advertise the city, but at 
the same time It is a l>etter idea for the 
business men to get up the excurdluns 
nearer home. 

The only thing that is likely to dis- 
courage the excursion movement on the 
part of the merchants is a lack of har- 
mony, for those that are interested in 
it say that all the business men must 
join hands in the matter regardless of 
personal feelings, for the benetlt of their 
trade, or there can be no success. The 
business men do not take much stock 
in the statement made that tney cannot 
afford to antagonize the country mer- 
chants as they would most certainly 
do in a move of the kind planned. They 
say that the manufacturing and busi- 
ness concerns of the Twin Cities come 
after the business of Duluth, yet none 
of the local merchants feel hurt over 
the matert. They look at It In the 
light of a business proposition, ^very 
man for himself and get all the busi- 
ness that he can. 

It has been suggested that if the Du- merchants combined to form a 
league for the purpose of going Into the 
excursion business, the business men 
of West Superior would be very likely 
to adopt a similar campaign and try 
to get the business of the excursionists. 
One of the local merchants, who is very 
enthusiastic over the matter, said yes- 
terday that an organization of Duluth 
merchant.^ would have nothing to fear 
from West Superior and would be in a 
position to give them the hardest 
hustle that they ever experienced If 
they attempted something along the 
same line.

The secret service has unearthed an-

a large quantity of bogus bills, which 
are so cleverly executed that the aver-

being spurious. Things of great value 
are always selected by counterfeiters for 
Imitation, notably the celebrated Hos- 
teller's Stomach Bitters, which has 
many Imitators but no equals for Indi- 
gesilon. dyspepsia, constipation, ner- 
vousness and general debility. The Bit- 
ters set things right In the stomach, and 
when the stomach Is In good order it 
makes good blood and plenty of It. In 
this manner the Bitters get at the seat 
of strength and vitality, and restore 
vigor to the weak and debilitated. Be-

The state summer school for teachers 
at Duluth Is scheduled to open on July f. 
and wllU continue for eight weeks, end- 
ing Aug. 8. Efforts are being made to 
make the session this year one of the 
mist successful ever held, and those In 
charge say tlvat the prospects are good 
for a large attendance, much interest 
being shown among the teachers. This 
is the fourth season of the summer 
school m this city. The summer school 
affords all the teachers of the country 
schools as well As those of the city 
schools an opportunity of reviewing the 
several branches taught In the public 
schools, and the Instruction Is given 
under th^ direction of expertenced teach- 
ers who know on which subjects to place 
special emphasis. The summer school 
also aids those who desire state cert tl- 
cates. and Is on the whole a most valu- 
able opportunity f'>r all those desiring a 
few weeks of th. rough review. The 
temperature In Duluth Is such during 
the summer monUis that it is not dim- 
cult for the teachers to spend a portion 
of the summer months In studying. Ex- 
cellent provisions have been niade by 
the state departihent for a staff of In- 
structors. The prospectus, which wUl 
soon be Issued, will aay: 

"R E Denfeld. superintendent of the 
city schools, will be the conductor. Un- 
der him may be pursued the subjects of 
pedagogy, civics, psychology, etc. It is 
his fin? io make this ^he banner year 
for tCie Duluth training st^hool. All who 
attend will no doubt be influenced by his 

enthusiasm. », . # .k« wratar

vllle schools, a wideawake f^J"^"' ";>«"• 
begins his first year In the Duluth 
schools. To him has been assigned geo-

who have the pleasure of working with 
him speak'S. the '^'^hest term.s of hi. 
careful, thorough, systematfc and defin- 

'^ "s"u;^^n?enS"ent Reed, .f Coquet, will

may be assigned to Superintendent 
Frazler. or some one of ^h- Instructors 
as It may be Impossible for Mr. Reed U) 
take charge of so much w >rk. Of Mr. 
Reed It may be said, although he Is one 
of the younger of the superintendents, 

he Is fast taking a leading position. His 
acquaintance with language and gram- 
mer is such as to make him almost an 
authority upon how these subjects 
should be presented in the public schools. 
At the I.ake Superior Teachers' associa- 
tion he presented a very valuable paper 
on the subject of language, which wa.s 
most favorably commented upon by all 
who attended. As these subjects are 
among the most Important pursued In 
the summer school, we have no hesitation 
In promising to those who take up the 
subject a most profitable season of w orK. 
••.S A Foster, for .several years super- 
intendent at Two Harbors. Minn, and 
for the past year conne.ned with tne 
Duluth high school as teacher of mathe- 
matics, will have charge of the mathe- 
matical work. Mr. Foster Is a thorough 
master of his sul)ject. and knows how 
to meet the difficulties of the student, 
and is on the whole a clear, definite and 
logical instructor. The school is cq.- 
tainly very fortunate In having hl«5 ser- 
vices. ^ , 

"Concerning Miss Mary Gardner an- 
other Instructor who has charge of the 
primary or model s.^hool, it Is not neces- 
sary to speak, since she is so well known 
because of her long service In the 
schools and her thorough and exceed- 
ingly satisfactory work. Teachers de- 
sirous of coming into contact with the 
latest and ix-st methods In prtmary 
.schools will be highly benefited by 
working under her. 

"A T Park, county superintendent or 
St Louis county, has also consented to 
give object le.ssons in nature study, 
lessons that will be thoroughly helpful 
to the teacher. Of Mr. Park we can say 
that while connected with the Dulutn 
high school, he was especially strong 
in science, and his thorough and inti- 
mate knowledge of the subject cannot 
fail to arouse Interest on the part of tne 

student. ^ .^ »l * - 

"In conclusion It may be said that a 
large attendance of both city and 
county teachers is anticipated. Particu- 
lars with reference to courses of study, 
etc may be obtained from the con- 
ductor. R. E. Denfeld. high school cr

Mr. Bishop's 2-year-old son Christian 
opened his pretty blue eyes and smll^a 
upon the anxious face of his mother wno 
was bending over his crib. 

Christian went to bed at his usual hour 
Saturday evening, apparently In the besi 
of health. When Mrs. Bishop awoke yes- 
terday morning she was horrified to fine 
his body still and cold. She placed ht-i 
ear to his heart, but no heart beats were 
audible. A watch crystal placed at the 
mouth was not moistened. Ho was appar- 
ently dead. 

Mr Bishop was about to make arrange- 
ments for the funeral when some one 
suggested that a physician be called In^ 
When Dr. Melerlsch arrived he thought 
his presence unnecessary, but In a per-

Caused Destruction of a House 
By Fire. 

Ccdumhus. Neb., May .'lO.— The evil in- 
fluence of a black cat has brouijht to 
»shes the fine country r'<id. ti< e of 
George Wa'.radt, near this place. Th" 
»ninial was a stray whU h the family had 
adoided fi r luck, and had been fed and 
irroomed until its coat shone like velvet. 
Notwithstanding this hospitality, the 
feline retained the r'ledatory trails of 
the days >f its vagabondage. 

After the family had left the supper 
table the ill-bred animal sprang upon the 
table, and in reai bins for a Juicy morsel, 
upset the k. 1 osene lamp. Hard work on 
the part oL ifie family and the neighbors 
resulted in the salvage of a portion of 
the household Koods in the part of the 
ciwelling furthest from the flames. There 
were no facilities for fighting fire, how- 
evt r. and the building was burned to 
the ground, with a loss of $r)000. The 
black mischief-maker has not been seen 
iince the fire.

"AiKl this iiieat civil war cost dearly. 
Th. ub-and.s of lives were sacrlliced. 
Thousands of men left the'r wiv^s,

they would ever see them again. Thou-

graves of the brave men who died that

very dear to us. and it should be to you.

put our flags at half mast tOi sho\v our

to explain these things to the children, 
so that in years to come, when we have

thi.« beautiful custom may not die out.

President A. J. Earling of the Chicago, 
Milwaukee & St. Paul road, accDmpanied 
by a party of the Milwaukee officials, 
arrived In the city this morning In the 
president's iirivate car, attached to the 
rear of the Northern Pacific train from

dent E. L. Brown of the Northern Pa- 
cific road, the party immediately took a 
special train and Is making a trip over 
the Njrttiern Pacific terminals in Du- 
iuth and Superior. It is said that the 
visit has no special significance other- 
wise than a desire of the offlcials of the 
Milwaukee road to learn more of the 
Northern Pacific company's terminal fa- 
cilities and the Improvements that will 
be made on tiarfleld avenue and the St. 
Louis bay front in the way of dockage

Washington Bureau. 

Washington, May .'.0.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— The Ayres-Bonine tragedy cf 
■Wednesday, May 15, is in many respects 
the most remarkable crime-instance on 
record. Nd case outside of the pages of 
Edgar Allen Foe, Cunan Doyle of per- 
haps some French writer of mysterious 
murder fiction furni.<^Cies a parallel. 

At about 2 o'clock on 'Wednesday 
mornin.g, May 15, three pistol shots were 
fired in a fsurth-stoiy front room of the 
Hotel Kenmore, in slight of the United 
States capitol. The Kenmore is an old- 
fashioned house, of a severe, perpendicu- 
lar exterior on Norti-, Capitol street, set 
in among a row of mire or less preten- 
tious dwellings. It is five stories higfi, 
painted white, with a large, convenient 
fire escape reaching from a balcony in 
front of the second story to the roof. 
Most of the people who live there are 
employed In the government depart- 
ments. Many of them are young men 
and women tiolding clerical positions In 
the census office. The place has the as- 
pect and atmosphere of a class of large 
boarding houses un the hatel pattern 
typical of the Capital City. 

"The shots were heard by at least two 
persons, a man nanud. Baker, who ten- 
ants a house adjacent to the Kenmore, 
and a young woman, Miss Minas, who 
occupied a rojm on the fourth floor 
next to that from which tCie report of 
the pistol emanate^. Her room 
Is on a hall. It Is sep- 
arated from ttiat , occupied by 
James Seymour Ayres by a door, which 
was locked and screened by a portier, 
and against which stood Ayres' iron bed- 
stead. This bed was near the door which 
gives access to the hail. Baker, on hear- 
ing the shots, got out of bed and opened 
a front window and looked out. He could 
distinctly see the fire escape against the 
bright glare of an electric arc lamp, 
which lit up a portion of the street. 
Looking ui5 in the direction from which 
he Imagined the shots proceeded, he 

"What has happened up there?" 
He heard a reply. It seemed to be made 
by a woman, who said: 
"There Is nothing the matter here." 
Baker paused at the open window a 
while, his head resting against the 
casement. As his eye swept over the 
surroundings he stiildenly became con- 
scious of something m:>ving on the fire 
escape. He looked up and saw a woman. 
She was apparently coming frgt" Ih? 
fourth story and wad going doWn the 
fire escape with her face toward him, 
one hand on the railing, the other hold- 
ing up her dress. She was dressed in a 
dark skirt or wrapper, and her hair was 
hanging down her back. He could see to 
her knees, as she held up her skirt to 
prevent it fiom entangling her feet. It 
was too dark to distinguish the face. 
The apparition deliberately descended 
the iron steps of the escape, and having 
reached the balcony on the second fioor, 
where the parlor Is located. disan!)eared 
through an open window Into the house. 
The vigilant Baker saw and heard 
nothing more, and under an Impression 
that there were some strange doings at 
the Kenmore, but with no idea of murder 
or bloodshed, complacently pulleil down 
his sash and resigned himself to another 
Installment of the much-needed repose. 

Miss Mipas was awakened out of a 
sound sleep by the shots next door to 
her, and was thrown into a state of 
shapeless terror by cries for "help" and 
a series of moans. Tliere was no sound 
of voices, however. Nothing to indicate 
a struggle or display of human passion, 
uncanny Influence of a terrible tragedy, 
and then silence. Witnesses say there 
was a wide crack in the door betwcc^n 
the room and that of the young man 
next to her. She did not look to see 
what had happened. Woman-like, she 
barricaded her door and looked out of 
the window on the street, in hopes of 
seeing one of the firemen of the engine 
house across the way and calling to him. 
But there was no sign of life In that 
direction, and the stre. t was deserted. 
She was in a state of hysterical fright. 
She knew something dreadful had hai>- 
pened in the next room, but made no 
further attempt to learn the facts. 

That apartment was occupied by 
voung Avres, a census clerk. 21 years of 
age. who was studying dental surgery 
at the Columbian university. He had 
been appointed to a place In the census 
bureau bv Representative Weeks of 
Michigan, and had lived at the Kenmore 
for some time. He was i.opular and a 
favorite with women. The next day was 
set for his departure from the Kenmore. 
He had thrown out hints that the temp- 
tations were too great there; that he 
must g-i to some lodgings where he could 
pursue his studies undisturbed. He nad 
also intimated that he anticipated "trou- 
ble" in getting awaifrojn the hotel from 
some person unnamed. 

Miss Minas saw no onf descending the 
fire escape as she Iook.-<l out for help, 
and In a shiver of terror awaited the de- 
velopments of the day to come. 

The guests gathered at breakfast the 
next morning with that sense of depres- 
sion that comes of the vague conscious- 
ness of some Intangible horror. Youns 
Ayres was not among them. It was 
probablv 8 o'clock before the subject of 
the unusual noises of the night were 
brought under discussion. A lad in the 
house was the first to begin the subject. 
Then several Joined In tCie talk. The ab- 
gence of Ayres exQited comment. A 
policeman was summoned. 

The officer ascended the stairs to the 
fourth flcir. The door of Ayres' room 
was found bolted from within. The 
policeman burst It open, and an inde- 
scribable scene lay unfolded before the 
gaze of the little group in the hall. On 
the floor lay Ayres in his undershirt, 
dead A pool of blood told the story of 
his death. The disordered condition of 
the room and the attitude of the dead 
youth Indicated that a struggle had pre- 
ceded his violent end. On a trunk lav 
a blood-covered revolver. On a bureau 
lay a little heap of unused cartridges. 
On the white window-sill was the 1m- 
T^resslon of a bloody hand. A woman s 
fan lay on the floor. 

Here was a mystery of crime to stir 
the pulse of the professional manhunter. 
It froae the blood of the onlookers. 

Yet the first impre.ssion to go forth 
wa.^ that the Kenmcre had been the 
scene of a suicide. It was not until Mr. 
Baker described the events of the night, 
and Miss Minas contributed the narra- 

tive of her frightful experience, that the 
thought of crime found lodgment in t.'ie 
minds of the public. Every tenant of 
the house was at once under suspicion. 
The mystery deepened by the conclusion 
reached by the detectives that Ayres 
must have been murdered by a man. 
physically his master, as the result of an 
unequal contest of strength, resulting in 
his death. The portier had been pulled 
from its hanging.=!. This was afterwards 
explained — eight days afterward — by the 
admission of the policeman that iie uad 
piilled it down, and explains why Mis3 
Minas could not have lioked into the 
room through the crack in the door. The 
evidence of a desperate struggle was 
plain — the blood on the revolver, the dis- 
turbed condition of the ro*m. but more 
than all, the position of the body itself. 
The legs were covered wif:! bruises. 

Among the tenants of the Kenmore 
■was a slight, sweet-faced, woman cf en- 
gaging manners, Mrs. Lola Ida Henry 
Bonine. Her husband is a traveling man 
fir a wholesale drug house in Chicago 
cr Detroit. He has been in the habit of 
coming to Washington to visit his wife 
and two sons at the Kenmore at inter- 
vals of several weeks, soinetime.-! 
oftener. He had last paid them a visit 
on May 12. He was formerly a druggist 
at Richmond, Kan., and is extremely 
tiear-sighted and in danger of losing his 
vision entirely. Mrs. Bonlne's sons are 
15 and 13 vears old. 

She was a general favorite at the hotel. 
The fear of her husband's prospective 
loss of sight Inspired her with an ambi- 
tion to educate herself in medicine and 
provide for her family in case her hus- 
band's case became serious enough to 
demand his retirement from business. 
She was the moving spirit of the social 
life at the Kenmore. She organized card 
parties and hops among the guests and 
their friends. She took an interest in 
the young people of the place. Some of 
them went to her with their little trou- 
bles because they found ever an active 
.sympathiser In her. She and Ayres had 
been good friends until a day or two 
after March 4, "Inaugural night." Then 
they had a quarrel. Ayres accused her 
of having spread scandal g<^)sslp about 
him, and they apparently met as 
strangers until the day preceding the 
tragedy, when they made up again. 
Their estrangement had lasted upward.s 
of two months. 

There was a dance at the Kenmore the 
night of Tuesday, May 14, at which Mis. 
Bonine and Mr. Ayres were present. 
About midnight the young man went to 
his room with a friend named Burns. 
He had promised to give Burns his old 
trunk when he left the hotel to take 
lodginga,el»ewhere the next da.v. "U^'hat 
occurreJ in Ayres' room between the 
time that Burns left him and 2 ti'clork. 
when Baker and Miss Minas heard the 
reports of the pistol, is a hiatus that may 
explain things still shrouded In mystery. 
The theory of suicide upset by Baker 
and Miss Min;^s was succeeded by a 
theory that Ayres. having maintained 
Intimate relations with a woman, was 
surprised by an outraged husband, who 
had entered his room and killed him. 
The theory then took the channel that 
the woman had escaped by the flre es- 
cape after the man had been admitted to 
the hall by her and she had bolted the 
■Who, then, was the woman? 
Baker failed to identify any of the 
female lodgers of the hotel as the one he 
had seen descending the fire escape. Miss 
Minas knew nothing of any woman in 
connection with the events that trans- 
pired In the room next to hers the night 
of the tragedy. Y'et the evidence was 
unmistakable. Baker was a credible 
witness; in the room lay a fan. and .the 
Impress of the hand on the window sill 
was conclusively that of a woman. 

The detectives were bafliled but dogged. 
They took up their quarters at the Ken- 
more. They worked day and night. 
They kept a searching eye on every wo- 
man In the place, "noey watched 
Minas and they shadowed Mrs. Bonine. 
Not one of the guests was exempt from 
the suspicion that she might be the 

Mrs. Bonine was among those who 
gathered at the breakfast table on Wed- 
nesday morning with her children. She 
heard the events of the night in the 
Ayres room discussed by the boarders 
and saw the policemen summoned. ^ But 
there was no lietrayal of emotion. Noth- 
ing In her outward appearance Indicated 
that she knew aught of the night's dark 

There Is an annex to the hotel proper 
of only three stories. This annex is 
painted the same color as the main 
building, but is remote from the fire- 
eecape. It connects, however, with the 
hotel and is part of it. Mrs. Bonlne's 
rooms were on an upper floor in the 
annex. Halls connect one house with 
the other. 

Days elapsed in fruitless search for a 
clue. Whoever had entered Ayres' 
room that Wednesday morning and 
participated in the tragedy was in the 
house. The detectives knew it, os did 
the whole public, for by this time the 
case was celebrated and the exclusive 
topic of conversation everywhere. The 
guests of the hotel were under a Iright- 
ful strain. Several women were on the 
verge of collapse. Mies Minas was 
heard to scream in her sleep, as In her 
dreams her mind wandered to the night 
of the tragedy and she lived ovf>r again 
in vivid fancy the dark mystery In her 
neighbor's rpom. Every woman wps 
examined. There were rumors of the 
estranged relationship between Mrs. 
Bonine and Mr. Ayres. There were 
those who thoufrht it might furnish 
some clue to the door. Mrs. Bonine wa^s 
cross-examined by the detectives. Her 
former relations with the dead man 
were spoken of. She met the detectives 
more than half way. She opened her 
closets and told them to examine her 
dresses and clothing. She showed them, 
a dark wrapper she was accustomed to 
wear and which Miss Minas had said 
she wore that night, after the dance, 
when she was at her rooni for a few 
moments' conversation. She wanted 
them to satisfy themselves and acquit 
her of anv suspicion. 

Thus time wore on until Monday, Mf y 
20, precisely six days from the nigjit of 
the tragedy, and the mystery ^was as 
far from lieing unraveled as ever. Ayres' 
father had come from Michigan. The 
inquest had been held, and the coron- 
er's examination was under way. Miss 
Mlnaa testified having known Mrs. 
Bonir.e to go to Ayres' room at vari.rjs 
times. A locksmith testified having 
been asked several times to repair the 
lock of Ayres' room at the solicitation 
cf Mr. Warfield. the hotel owner, and 
having seen Mrs. Bonine there. Ayres 

had thrown out hints that he must have 
the lock repaired to keep people out ol 
his room who were annoying him. Mrs. 
Bonine did not testify, but the inquiry 
developed that she had received Ayres' 
permission to visit his rooms to read 
his medical books. 

On Monday afternoon, six days after 
tiie killing, nothing tangible had de- 
veloped- It was evident, however, that 
such evidence as was elicited by the 
ofllcial inquiry connected Mrs. Bonine 
in her relationship to Ayres sufficiently, 
though far from conclusively, to bring 
her more prominently Into the case tlian 
any other woman in the Kenmore. 

At 4:30 o'clock on Monday afternoon 
a message flew over the telephone wire 
to a prominent new.apaper from its re- 
porter at police headquarters that Mrs. 
Bcnine had made a confession and ad- 
mitted having* killed Ayres. The re- 
port spread like magic. Every paper 
bullQ^ined it, and by 5:15 extras were on 
the street confirming the nev>-^. 

Mrs. Bonine has said nothing to her 
hus'oand of her purpose. It wa-j expect- 
ed that she would be asked to testify 
before the coroner's jury. One of the 
detectives had impreseeti her with the 
necessity of making a stSitement to 
clear her of the suspicion gaining 
ground that she had Ivnowledge of the 
crime. Under this pressure she had in- 
timated her desire to make a statement 
to the police. A carriage drove her and 
her husiand to police headquarters. 
Mr. Bonine had arrived on Saturday, 
May 8, at the hotel, ignorant of the 
fact even that some one had been killed 
at the Kenmore. 

Mrs. Bonine was u.shered into a pri- 
vate room, and there, in the presence of 
the chief of police and the district ;it- 
torriey, related the story of the killing, 
as has been widely published. 

Mr.*. Bonine, in her confe-seion. states 
that Ayres came to her room at about 
2 o'clock, whc n the was asleep, and 
asked her for seme medicine to ward off 
a chill; that she searched for some 
bromo-quinine in her boys' room, and 
finding none, so informed him at tho 
door while he stood in the hnll. Tbr.t 
he then placed his arm around her and 
begged her to rome t . his i to tall; 
O'er their recent unpleasantness and 
adjust their differences; that he re- 
turned to his room while she dressed 
herself and then proceeded to follow 
him there. That as she entered the 
room, he bolted the door, and, pointing 
a revolver at her, said: "I guess you 
will listen to me now." She thought at 
first he was not eerious, but he grasped 
her and .=he ran to the window 
to the fire-escape and fell over her 
wrapper. A struggle thereupon ensue<l 
for tl\e possession of the pistol, in which 
Ayrea was killed. Mrs. Bonine circum- 
stantially described the encounter in the 
room, aiid the examination failed to 
shake her statement in any particular. 

"The police are not satisfied th-?' *he 
whole has been told, but their most dill- 
gent efforts thus far have failed to de- 
velop an> thing calculated to cast doubt 
upon her story. An impression prevails 
that a third party was concerned in the 
killing. Ayre« had had athletic train- 
ing, and Mrs. Bonine Is a slight woman, 
weighing not quite 100 pounds. The 
conclusion is that either Ayrc.^ was 
fatally shot before he could defend him- 
self, and made a weak struggle until he 
died, or that a stron.ger person than 
Mrs. Bonine had a hand in the tragedy. 

Mrs. Bonine '.^aid that she owned a 
pistol alKiut a year ago. whleh she gave 
to a waiter at the hotel. This part of 
her story was confirmed, and leaves 
the Inevitable conclusion that the re- 
volver was Ayres' property, thus going 
far to prove that Mrs. Bonine catered 
the room unarmed, and that the pistol 
may have been produced by Ayres foi 
the purpose alleged. 

In favor of the theory of a deliberate 
murder are the facts that Mrs. Bonine 
entered the room at 2 o'clock in the 
morning; that the occupant was a 
young man in the prime of his strength 
and vigor: that three shots were fired, 
each of which entered his body and re- 
sulted in his death; that she left the 
room by the fire-escape and for six days 
concealed the fact that she knew any- 
thing of the event. Tex^timony having 
a lateral bearing on the presumption of 
her guilt is the statement that she was 
frequently seen in Ayres' room; that 
they had quarreled; that Ayres had 
hinted at the prosi>ect of trouble when 
he should leave the Kenmore and had 
asked to have his door repaired in or- 
der to protect himself from the annoy- 
ance of persons who troubled liim. 

In favor of the pre-;umption of her 
innocence of Intentional crime are the 
facts set forth In Mrs. Bonlne's con- 
fession, with the evidence in her favor 
of having Ixune a good reputation in 
different parts of the country. As a 
general proposition, the boarding house 
gossip concerning her may safely be 
eliminated frum calculation unless tan- 
gible corroborative evidence is pro- 
duced. Such gossip, common every- 
where. Is aggravated by the conditions 
of a Washington boarding house, where 
a degree <>f freedom of intercourse, not 
to say license, is characteristic more or 

Public opinion is divided. By one part 
of the public Mrs. Bonlne's guilt is un- 
questioned; by another her case is stub- 
bornly upheld. The loyalty of her hus- 
band to her in her great predicament ia 
gaining sympahty for her. The dis- 
crepancy of the aged of the two princi- 
pals Is pointed out. as is the fact that 
she is the mother of two boya, one of 
whom Is within six years as old as the 

The absorbing element of the case Is 
the superhuman nerve displayed by 
Mrs. Bonine during the terrible ordeal 
following the tragic occurrences in the 
little 6 by 12 room, from the time she 
left A-res' presence to the day of her 
confessloa. *'*'.'. 

"The oinsclousness of my innocence 
alone has sustained me," she remarked 
after her arrei^t. And many are putting 
faith In her confession. 

The authorities admit that they have 
no evidence other than the voluntary 
admissions of Mrs. Bonine. The absence 
of witnesses to the tragedy, and the 
absence of any discoverable motive for 
a deliberate crime baffle their ingenuity 
of attempting to fasten the charge of 
murder upon her. If she goes forth a 
free woman in a comparatively short 
time there will be few who will be sur-

from The Herald 

Washington Bureau. 

Washington, May 30.— (Special to The 
■Herald.) — A recent communication 
from Consul Hughes, at Coburg, states: 
"It seems strange that our large pro- 
ducers of fruit preserves have never 
seriously tried to capture the German 
market for this line *f goods. With the 
exception of the seaboard cities— Ham- 
burg. Bremen, etc.— and a few places 
like Berlin and Dresden, preserves put 
up in the United States are not lo I* 
found, except, perhaps, where the resi- 
dent consul has induced some store- 
keeper to put in a small stock. 

"it is a well-known fact that every 
German family, be it ever so humble, 
must have its oompot,' or sweet, served 
with the meal at dinner. Where our 
dried fruiUs are known, they have been 
well liked and much used, but our jams 
and marmalades ought aUo lo be push- 
ed As it is at present, either the Metz 
Of English goods are used. Our pre- 
serves could be imported as cheaply. Ir 
it were done by the .American preserver 
him.self and not throum'h the hands of 
German middlemen. First-cla.s« gojds 
must be sent, carefully put up in O.oaOS- 
pound 1-1023-pound, and 2.2046-pound 
pacages, either in class or stone pols 
for the better-clasfc of trade, and in 
stone or wood ve.>«.sels of 11.023 and 
22 ( tj-pound t5lze.>«. from which the re- 
tailers may supply •makl lustomers. 

"Best of all would be for the Ameri- 
can caAning comix^hies to establi.''h de- 
pots in the interion cities of Gcrminy. 
from which to sell dlrtxt to the small 
grocery stores, etc. Thepe storekeepers, 
as a rule, are not .weaithy enough to 
carry largo stocTls and prefer to buy in 
small uuantlties and often." 
• • » 

Consul Hughes, in another report to 
the state department, says: "The North 
Oeraman Lloyd, at Bremen, and the 
English Gas company, at Berlin, have 
placed large contracts for coal in 
land. and ai3 a result tiernian mining 
shares have l>een somewhat affect.^d. 
This step has caused surprise and rg- 
eret In commercial circles here, as It !s 
a well known fact that German coal 
companies, particularly the Rhenish- 
Wcstphallan coal .■.yiidlcate. y^-^^'f".?- 
large supply of coal on hand, ibis 
<!toi_k It is .said, amounts lo several hun- 
dred ' thousand to.ns. As neither the 
North German Lloyd nor the P.nglish 
Gas cmpany would have purchased 
(oal abroad could it have been procured 
in Germany at equally favorabe terms, 
it i« evident that (ierman coal dealers 
have not reduced their rales to the level 
of their English compelilors. Neither 
private mines nor those belonging to the 
state are willing to moderate prices, 
whi.h are the same as when the -scar- 
city of coal was most severely felt, t.hi.s. 
too in spite of the fact that all kinJj 
of merchandise have been ao low as to 
cause serious apprehension. 

"In view of those conditions, it ap- 
pears to mc that the present is an ex- 
cellent chance f.-r the United .states 
mine owners to gam a firm fo.Hhold in 
the German market. Qubk and judioi- 
OU..S action would re.sult in prolilable 
trade German manufacturers .\ ill 
welcome the Invasion with open arms. 

Consul General Guenther, of 
forl under recent dale, reports as fol- 
lows: According to a German techni- 
cal publication, alcohol Mnnot ho proflt- 
ablv used for making steam. One kilo- 
gram (2 2046-pounds) of coal, costing 
6-cent. the paper suys. produces from 
TOGO to S(V)0 caloric units, while one Kil- 
ogram of alcohol, valued at 5 centa Pro- 
duces only 6<Mi units. In spite of the 
number of good alcohol lamps on the 
market, alcohol is only used where a 
very strong light is necessary, without 
reference to economy. Only in one in- 
stance is alcohol preferable to coal or 
benzine, and that Is in 'V'^^^J'^ , ' "" *^" 
the explosion prin:iple. Alcohol l^avc^ 
no residue in the and from LS to 
24 per cent of its healing power is util- 
ized while steam utilizes only 13 per 
cent and benzine, petroleum and gas 
from 14 to IS per cent. » .. „, 

The article add.^: As the number of 
minor establishmpnts requiring rela- 
tively small power is constantly grow- 
ing alcohol motors are in demand. The 
automobile industry has lately given 
preference to alcohol motors, especially 
in the construction of freight autonrio- 
hlles The price, in Germany, of alcohol 
for "motor purpose is at present $4.80 for 
110 quarts." ^ ^ ^^^^ ANTWERP.

Barlow, Fla.. May 30.— Fred Rochelle, 
a negro, 35 years of age, who criminally 
assaulted and then murdered Mrs. 
Rena Taggart, a well known and highly 
respected white woman of this city, 
was burned at the stake here early 
last evening in the presence of a throng 
of persons. The burning was on the 
scene of the ne&ro's crime, within 100 
yards of the principal thoroughfare of 
the city. The assault and murder 
was one of the boldest and <"o]j|e»t 
blooded crimes ever committed in Flor- 
ida. Tuesday morning Mrs. Taggart 
went fishing alone in a small rowboat 
that she kept at the city bridge over 
Placo creek This is in full view of the 
public thoroughfare. A few minutes 
before noon, desiring to return home, 
she rowed her boat to the bridge and 
made il fast. A negro man was fishing 
from the bridge at the time. Mrs. 
Taggart started home and had pro- 
ceed' d only a few steps in the swamp 
toward the open prairie and thence to 
the street, when she was approached 
by Rochelle, who had been hiding in 
the swamp. He seized her, but she 
broke loose and ran screaming from 
the swamp into the prairie, where he 
overtook her. After the o.utrage the 
negro look a knife from his pocket and 
cut her throat from ear to ear. causing 
instant death. He then walked to the 
negro who had been fishing on the 
bridge and asked him what he should 
do with the body. He was told to leave 
it where il was. but unheedful of this 
request he took the bleeding form in 
his arms and carried it back to the 
swam-p, threw it down and escaped in- 
to the interior of the swamp. In a few 
minutes the crime had been reported 
and in less than an hour practically 
the entire city was in arms and a well- 
armed posse was moving in every direc- 
tion in .search of the criminal. Blood- 
hounds were secured and all night a 
fruitless* search was kept up. Yester- 
day morning no trace of the negro had 
been secured and the people were be- 
coming determined to apprehend him, 
as the chances for his final escape 
seemed to grow . About noon a courier 
arrived announcing that the negro had 
been captured by two other negroes 
three miles from the city. were 
Immediately on the trail, but the nap- 
tors evaded detection and succeeded in 
getting their prisoner pluckily Into the 
city and in turning him over to the 
sheriff of Polk county. In leas than 
ten minutes after the transfer had been 
made the streets became congested 
with people and the crowd, augmented 
as It marched, moved on the Jail. In 
spile of the sheriff and a strong guard 
of extra deputies, who made every effort 
to protect him from mob violence, they 
secured the prisoner and took up the 
march to the scene of the crime. He 
was half dragged, half carried to the 
bridge, enveloped by a great throng of 
people of all ages, who were resolute 
and determined, but quite and orderly. 
Scream after scream broke from the 
wretch's quivering lips, followed by 
groans and prayers for mercy. At the 
bridge the mob turned toward the 
prairie and then into the swamp and to 
the scene of the negro's crime. By com- 
mon consent burning was to be the 
penalty. The stake was the only sug- 
gestion as to the proper expiation of 
the crime. A barel was in readiness 
and was placed by the stak^ on the 
very spot where Mrs. Taggart was 
murdered. On this the negro was 
placed and chained lo the stake. He 
pleaded for mercy, but in the grent 
crowd around him silence was the only 
response. There were no jeers, no 
swearing, no disorder. Before the 
chains around his l)ody had been made 
fast cans of kerosene oil from many 
sources were passed to the front and 
one of the leaders stepepd to the negro 
and slowly, but dellTferately. poured it 
upon him and his clothes until clothes 
and barrel were well saturated. It was 
then e o'clock. The crowd was grow- 
ing and business in the city had prac- 
tically been suspended. When the 
'match was applied the blaze quickly 
leaped skyward. The burning body 
could be seen only as a dark object in 
the circle of a roaring flame. Then the 
fire slackened and 4^he writhing body 
came back in full view, but already the 
groans had ceased and the only evi- 
dence of life was in the contortions of 
the muscles of the limbs. For fifteen 
minutes the body burned and in a half 
hour from the minute of the application 
of the match only the charred bones 
were le>ft as a reminder of the negro's 
crime and his fate. The crowd dis- 
persed in an orderly manner and last 
night the city was quiet. 


How an Ohio Woman Reduced 
Her Flesh. 

Toledo. Ohio. May 30.— Mrs. Almeda Gor- 
danler. of^ttiO Vermont avenue, has com- 
pleted a 40-dav fast for the purpose of 
reducing her corpulency. She weighed 260 
pounds when she began the fast on April 
17. and Sunday she lipped the scales at 
170 pounds, and says she never felt better 
in her life. She says she started the fast 
of her own accord and made no •'splurge" 
about it. 

She claims to have lived without partak- 
ing of a mouthful of solid food during all 
the tim«. The only substance she took 
was water. hTe only object she had in the 
test was the reduction of flesh and bet- 
tering her health, and both objects were 
fully accomplished. Mrs. Gordanler is 41 
years old. Her feeling of hunger was 
something fearful up to the fourteenth 
day but after that it did not bother her. 
She' claims that almost any person in 
eond health and with a fair supply of 
flesh can fast from twenty to thirty days.

many ih.j.I. in West Duiuth that would

It has been suggested that perhaps 
pressure could be brought to bear on

proposition would be a paying one. Even 
now Alderman Swen.son, as was stated 
in The Herald yesterday, is working 
away on the West Third street €'Xtenslnn 
of the street railway, and the possibili- 
ties of getting the line tj the park are 
taid to be mutli better than they were 
last fall. The West Duluthians feel that 
Fairmount park will in time becime one 
of the most popular resort.s in the citv, 
after the Improvements contemplated 
have been carried out by the park board. 
Of course, all thl:' can not be dune at

London. May 31.— On the anniversary 
of Lord Roberts' entry into Johanm's- 
burg the country has been startled by 
the report of desperate fighting and 
heavy British losses within forty milts 
of the gold reef city. The battle at 
Vladenfontein. on the Durban-Jw»hin- 
nesburg railroad, reported by Lord Kit- 
chener today, l6 the most serious en- 
gagement since Gen. Clement's reverae 
at Magaliesburg. It shows Gen. Delarey 
is in no way daunted by the capture of 
eleven of hi.s gun.^ t>y Gen. Baitington. 
six weeks ago. The garrison of Vladen- 
fontein, apparently largely composed of 
yeomanry, had 174 men put out of ac- 
tion. That their assailants came to 
close quarters and suffered heavily is 
shown by the number%of dead left on 
the field. 

The dispatch from Lord Kitchener, 

dated Pretoria. May 30, Is as follows: 

"Gen. Dyon's force at Vladenfontein 
was attacked yesterday by Delarey's 
forces and there was severe fighting. 
The enemy was eventually driven 
with heavy loss, leaving thirty-five dead. 
I regret that cur casualties 
severe. The killed and 
bered 174.

Motorman Lost Control of the Train and Cars 

Dashed Down Steep Hill, Killing and 

Injuring the Passengers. 

Harrisburg, Pa., May 31.— The senate 
this morning passed finally the bill amend- 
ing the passenger railway act of 1S89 to 
permit the construction or a passenger 
railway in any street not occupied at 
present, and the bill providing for the 
erection of elevated and underground rail- 
ways. These are the bills that were intro- 
duced in the senate Wednesday after it 
became known that P. A. Widener and 
"William L. Elkins, the Philadelphia street 
railway magnates had sailed for Europe. 
The representatives of the Philadelphia 
traction interests came here and pleaded 
in vain either for the defeat of the de- 
feat of the bills or their postponement 
The extraordinary speed at which bills of 
such great importance have been rushed 
through the senate has aroused wide- 
spread Interest. Ten minutes after their 
introducliun they were reported favorably 
from committee, and they passed lirst, 
second and third readings without the 
loss of a moment' lime, all amendments 
Kdng rejected. It is stated here that 
thev will be railroaded through the house 
and' be in the hands of Governor Stone 
for his action before the end of next week. 
There is great mystery as to the Identity 
of the interests back of the legislature. 
Nobody here knows who is urging the 
passage of the bills, though It is admitted 
that tne Philadelphia streets are the onc-a 
most desired. The bill lu drafted so as to 
permit the occupation of Broad street, 
Philadelphia, which bas thus far l)een 
kepi free of street car tracks. 
The senate broke all Us records for 
i prompt action, by i)assing the t>ills final- 
Iv within less- than forty-eight hours after 
they were Introduced. They were called 
up ahead of other measures on the calen- 
dar at today's session of ITie senate and 
I>assed without debate by a vote of 32 to 
8. They will. It Is stated, be reported from 
comrnlttee In the house on Monday after- 
noon and read the lirst time at the evening 
session. The order of business will prol>- 
.-iblv he arranged by the rules committee 
to "take up the bills on Tuesday for the 
second reading and the following day for 
the third reading and final ra.=sage. 

"The promoters of the bills say thfy will 
l)e promptly ."i^ned by Governor Stole snd 
that a cor|.>oration will immediately be or- 
K^anlzed with a large cairital to take out a 
charter for the erection of an elevated 
rallrckad 8vste«i In Philadelphia and sub- 
urbs. They say als-o that Xhe steam rail- 
road companies are not antagonistic in 
this legislation and that there will l)e no 
organized oppoaJtion to it in the house. 


Washington, May 31.— The president 
and the cabinet today, at their meeting, 
decided that the action of the Cuban 
constitutional convention was "not a 
substantial" compliance with the terms 
of the Piatt amendment. The secre- 
tary of war will convey this fact to tlie 

Washington, May 31.— Senators Platt, 
of Connecticut, Lodge of Massachu- 
setts, and Fairbanks, of Indiana, had 
an hour's consultation with the presi- 
dent before the cabinet meeting today. 
The Cuban situation was under discus- 
sion and the president was desirous of 
obtaining the views of those senators 
as to whether the action ofthe consti- 
tutional convention "was substantial" 
acquiescence in the Platt amendment. 
Some of the details of the action of 
the Cuban convention are still lacking 
and before definite conclusions can be 
arrived at these must be supplied. The 
senators who talked with the president 
do not feel at liberty to express their 
opinions as to what should be done. 
They say that the whole matter Is one 
for the executive to decide as the 
amendment authorizes the president Lo 
relinquish control of Cuba when a gov- 
ernment has been established which 
substantially agrees to its terms. The 
conferences relating to Cuban affalis 
among leading administration officials 

and leading members of the UniteJ 
States senate, at present In Washing- 
ton, have continued and thonerh no defl« 
nite determination has been reached, 
there is quite a decided sentiment 
toward accepting the action of the con- 
vention as a substantial "compliance 
w ith the terms of the Platt amend-^ 

There Is a great deal of addenda In the 
way of legislation and interpretation la 
the report of the committee on relation* 
which has been adopted at Havana that 
is wholly unsatisfactory to the president 
and also to those who have been con- 
sulting with him, but there is an earnest 
desire to reach the best possible results. 
One of the most objectionable features 
of the interpretation Is the addition of 
the words saying that the action of the 
United States Is an amplification of tha 
Monroe doctrine. It Is emphatically 
stated by some of those who have be u, 
present at the conferences that the Mon-« 
roe doctrine has nothing whatever to da 
with the present situation in Cuba. It 
is stated that the earnest desire of tha 
president Is to retire from Cuba at tha 
earliest possible moment consistent with: 
the best interests of tbe people of the 
island and future relations between the 
new government and the United States, 
The problem Is whether withdrawal un-* 
der the amended Platt law will accom^ 
pllsh that result.

seven. The relatives of the strikers de- 
clare that f>rty of the men were killed 
and that ir.O others were wounded. A

Washington, May 31.— Having settled 
upon the amount of indemnity and the 
rate of interest to be paid upon the 
bonds, namely, 4 per cent, the ministers 
at Pekin are now negotiating respecting 
the difficult subject of guarantee. The 
Chinese plenipotentiaries are not con- 
cerned at this stage; the ministers must 
first agree among them.selves as to the 

method of guaranteeing the loan, an* 
this task promises to be difficult of dis- 
position. The United States govern- 
ment is pressed by Russia and FVance to 
make the guarantee international and 
joint, but it is firm in its declination to 
do this, basing its arguments upon con- 
stitutional limitations upon the execu- 
tive branch of the government, whica 
are not easy of comprehension to Euro- 
pean minds.

were New York, Mas.sachusetts. New

chairman of the federal suffrage com-

little excitement, but no trouble en- 

The situation assumed a more giava 
aspect with the threat of the allied 
trades to declare a sympathetic move-

shops, none of those to which the agree-

most extensive firm of the six signing

130 men employed, granted the machin-.

Brown, who "united the souls" of Pro-

Mii^s Itand. s. that th.y stand b-'fore 
my mind as two noble, true souls, lo 
unite them seemed the most natural 
thing in the world. I rep'-at that, fro.n 
the knowlfdge of the fads whuh 1 
think few pt-r.sons have had the oppor- 
tunity to possess. 1 saw no reason why 
Dr. Herron should not marry, any more 
than any other divuried person. 

"1 dou"t know why th.- marriapre 
should not be a valid on>v The law 
, ■ .; no set fonn. While most 

,,, i ^ or magistri les so through a 
set form and .say. "1 pronounce you .oan 
and wife," there are different ways of 
doing that. So far as my usual cus- 
tom is concerned in the matter of 
marriaKe. I use the Episcopal service 
when it i.9 called for, 1 use an ordmary 
service as a rule, because people are ac- 
customed to it. and I am willing they 
should have it. lUit in Dr. Horron's 
case he and Miss Rand had certain 
scruj)le.s in regard to the fact of mar- 

'•Dr. Ill noil. I am to s;iy 
for I have seen it in his osvn writing, 
believes that marriage is the uni )U of 
one man with one woman. He and 
Miss Rand said they wanted to be 
married as w. re Franklin H. W.-nworih 
and Marion Joan Craig. In that mar- 
riage no pb^dpes were given and Mayor 
Jones. <tf Toled'i, announceil them man 
and wife. 

"I was aseil hy Dr. Herron and Miss 
Rand to do what was neces<*ary in the 
matter of the service, becatise they 
wished that the mairiagc slioiild be 
Ui;al, of course. They felt that the 
tiKitit-r of marriage was a fact or It was 


"M ici.i;. in their eyes is the Inn. ling 
together of two persons l>y the jtovver of 
a mutual love, and that the public part 
of it— the essential part of the public— 
vva«3 their announcement of the fact thai 
they hod .•h<vsen ^ach other to be lius- 
band and wife. It was. therefore, their that the service should be an an- 
nouncement rather than a pron )unre- 
ment. That was the only particular in 
which the service was notal»ly different 
from oth>r ceremonie«r. 

"I prepared a special service for the 
. ■(■.■:) slon iH^irlng in mind the 
vi.M' M of the parties". It was tyi>ewrU- 
te;i and will. I expect, be printed in full. 
The service was a setting forth of what 
seemed t.t me and to them the oss«^ntial 
and eternal principles involved in the- 
ma tier of marriag*. 

"Dr. Herron made a statement, w hicli 
was. in substance, that he had cho5en 
Mis« Rand to he his wife. If he us* d 
the word companion he meant wife. 
Miss Rand made a similar statement. 
Then C. B. Patterson made an address 
on the subject of marriage. There was 
nothing unusual in tb* AddiAsa. It 

simply stated and emphatsized the 
spiritual side of marriage. 

"Let me repeat that there was«n Tth- 
ing in this service, in what I or anybody -said, that had the slightest savor 
of what is railed fret- love. It was 
purely the highest t^piritual conception 
of the union of twc) souls. The idea was 
tlHit there can be no marriage without 
love, and that perfe.t love between one

Canada Is Now In a Ceisus 

Ottawa. Ont., May ;;i.— On the tiecry 
that the censu^i returns of 1891 wert doc- 
tored, the government, it is said, will 
order an inquiry into the facts. The 
reason for the view that fraud was 
practiceu in 1891 is that .some of the re- 
turns of the recent census are n.ther 
disappointing in character. 
It is latent to everybody that throigh- 
out Canada there has bet.>n a gair. in 
population since ISyl. Yet the rt-tum-i 
from several of the rural districts in 
Ontario and Quebec appear to snow a 
falling off. 

One of the districts in Ontario which 
shows a reduced populatim is Eist 
i;iuce, where the falling off in popula- 
tion, as compared with 1S91, is abvut 
2500. In the province of Quetiec. the 
county of Mlsais'iuoi shows a 
of over -m, while in Rouville th^re 
were 3000 less persons counted than m 


On the other hand, the population of 
the large urban centLis, .s<> far as can 
be estimated, indicat e large in creast:3. 


It Is on the Way to Buffalo 

New York, May ol.— What is said by 
jewelers to be the' largest diamond ever 
seen in the country is now in this city 
on its way to the Pan-American exi>osi- 
lion. It is oanacy colored, is the prop- 
erty of Stern Bros. & Co.. the diamond 
importers, and was purchased by thcni 
abr.>ad to form part of their exhibit ai 
thf exposition. It reached here 
the other side a few days ago. I: 
weighs in its pres.^nt finished^ ^f^^'* 
''OT 3-4 carats. The famous Kohinoor 
diamond, which belongs to the British 
crown, weighs in its present rose form 
106 1-16 carata. The color of the Iflr- 
per stone makes its value only a frac- 
tion of the value put upon the Kohinoor. 
Its weight In the rough was 600 carats. 

The ax has begun to fall. 
The weeding out of the state inspec- 
tion and weighing departments has l»e- 
gun in dead earnest, and from all ap- 
pearances it may be a clean sweep. It 
even appears that Republicans who 
held through the Lind administration 
aie to be subjected to the disagreeable 
operation of decapitation. Two of them 
on the weighing force have been let out, 
and there is much di.s.satisfact.ion in 
some quarters over their removal. 
These two are S. \V. Higgins and J. O. 
Milne. Their removal is particularly 
aggravating to the Grand Army men of 
the city, for both are prominent in the 
ranks of the veterans. Mr. Milne has 
been on the force for a number of years, 
and Mr. Higgins also. The matter was 
noitsed about amonc the veterans yester- 
day morning wheW they met at their 
pu.<l hall tt) go to the memorial exer- 
cises, and there was much indignatio.a. 
One of them was inclined to touch up 
the Republicans among the veterans a 
little and brought out a copy of the 
News Tribune of yesterday mornmg 
and read this from the editorial on 
"The Nation's Dead:"' 

"The consideration and gratitude 
which the Uni'ted States extends to its 
soldiers has no parallel in history. No 
other nation ever treated its veterans 
with such generosity." 

Some of the comments In response 
were rathej- sarcastic. Some veterans 
who were appointed l)y the fusion 
ministration were also let 
Longmuir and J. A. Gray 
them. . 

The discharge of J. O. Milne seems to 
the veterans to l>e particularly hard to 
explain. The Republican campaign 
committee made considerable use of his 
services, and he was in a position to 
render valuable aid, in fact there are 
few of the old soldiers in the state who 
could have given the same service that 
he did. By reason of being a member of 
the council of administration of the de- 
Ijartment of Minnesota of the G. A. R.. 
he was able to reach a larger number of 
members than could any other man in 
all probability, except, of course, other 
members of the s»^ime council. He wa.s 
therefore particularly valuable to send 
,jut circulars, etc.. and in giving infor- 
mation as to the influential men to 
leach. Now he is dropped to give place 
to someone else. 

The following members of the inspec- 
tion force at Duluth are to ^^tep out; 
C. E. Paltinson. of Duluth. June 15: E. 
T. Matthews, of Marshall 
Charles Lindberg. June 
son. June 1. 

The following have been named to take 
their places: W. F. Cyr. of Red Luke 
Falls, sampler: W. C Malchow. of Wil- 
der, sampler: David Couits. of Arsvle. 
helper; Otis R. Lippitt, White Rock, S. 
D.. sampler. 

It will be noticed that one of tihe ap- 
'pointees is from South Dakota. At the 
time Mr. Prodger made an appointment 
of a man from another -tate there was 
a great howl in the News Tribune. It 
is not expected that anything will be 
heard this time. 

W H Wells of Montevideo, nas al- 
ready succeeded H. A. Foss. of Minne- 
apolis, as chief clerk in t^e office here. 

There are fifteen or more places still 
to be changed in the office, if the board 
is determined to make a clean sweeii. 

In the weighing department a more 
general removal has been made. The 
foil , wing ^ave received notice that their 
time will expire on June 1: M. Hopna. 
Alex. Longmuir. James Murra>% J. T 
Dunphy. J. D. Stringer. F. E. Bradley 
and VV. A. Cragin. all of Duluth. 

Mr. Cragin has been on th-? force fo) 
seven or eight years, but is said to be a 
Democrat. He was a candidate for th. 
appeals board appointment a short time 
ago. but dropped out. „ ^ .. » . • 

J A Grey has been notified that his 
tim'e Ls up June 15. He will be succeeded 
by W. P. Strickland, who is also a G. A.

Maurice Griffin Sent Up 

—He Will Re=Enter 


Ex-Aldtrman Maurice Griffin was sen- 
tenced to sixty days hard labor in the 
county jail for drunkenness, this morn- 

licforo entering upon his sentence he 
announced that as soon as he .got out 
again he would re-enter politics, fie said 
that Henry Truelsen would certainly be 
clect-d mavor next February and tbat 
he would appoint Alderman i^'rank Schaf- 
fer. his clnei' of police. Mr. Griffin felt 
certain that the iieople of the city had 
become wei-ry of experimeuting and were 
sulTerio,- from a tremendous de.sir? to get 
back to a good old German administra- 
tion. . , , , 

The former alderman has had a check- 
ered "ar.^»r since leaving the coimcil. He 
has been in police court twice before for 
drunk and his sentence this morn- 
ing was the niininium for the third oi- 
feiise . . ,

from a saloon on Twentictn avenue west 
and trilling over the sidewalk fell head- 
lone into the street. His face was bad-

lieHrtquarters it was feare^l that ne was 
seriou.slv hurt, but thi.s mormiig he has 
recovered from the shock of the tall. 

First "Church Trust" Has 

Been Formed at 


Toledo. Ohi^, May 31.— The "church 
trust" of Toledo now is a fact, the formal 
organization having been completed at 
a meeting held Wednesday night. Under 
the name of "Tlie Federation of Churtfi 
and Christian Workers in Toledo and 
Vicinity. " a cl^se union has been formed, 
the object of which is to extend religious 
work into, every home in the city. 

Nearly all evangelical bodies in the 
city were represented at tihe meeting, 
and even greater interest than expected 
was shown in the organization. Officers 
for the first year were elected, there 
being a lively contest between Dr. Shan- 
non of SI. Paul's Methodist Episcooal 
and Dr. Powell of the First Presbyterian 

A constitution setting forth the ob- 
jects of the federation was adopted, and 
the work outlined in a general man- 

The intention is to invite every resi- 
dent of Toleda and vicinity to join one of 
the churches. Spei ial efforts will be 
made to attract those who profess no 
religion, and to secure them as membeiB 
of some body afliliated witih the federa- 

p:nterta:nment.s. n:cie elaborate ana 
ambitijus than any po.-^sibie for one 
church, will be given, and the strangers 
in the city and non-church-goers will be 
invited and given a chance to become 
acquainted. Club rooms, a library, a 
gymnasium, courses In lectures by dis- 
tinguished persons, and other attrac- 
tions are among the things promised, 
and it is believed these will induce many 
who now profe.-;s no religion to join one 
of the churclies or soiiefes 

ITnited work for municipal rf^form. also 
is one of the objects of i)v fod^ratiou. 
and It is believed possible to secure 
unanimous sunport of all Ch.'istiaas iu 
the city when ttie need appeirs. 

The churches represente j at the meet- 
ing, and. .".cccrdingly. ar'? rbarl.^r mem- 
bers of the federation movement, are: 

Plymouth Congregational. First Unit- 
ed Presbyteiian, First Baptist, First 
Presbyterian, Grace Reformed, Epworth 
M. E.', Broadway M. E.. Monroe Street 
M E.. Central Congregational. St. Paul's 
Episcopal, Evangelieal association, 
Salem Evangelical, Third Presbyterian. 
Detroit Avenue Evangelical and St. 
Paul's M. E. TIhe Fifth Presbyterian and 
the T. M. C. A. were represented by 
proxy. ,. . .. 

Another meeting will be held in the 
near future, when the further work of 
the federation will be brought up and

William Randolph Says There 
Is Activity. 

Williitn Randolph, of Mine Center. 
th- veteran niinin.:; man of the Seine 
lliver gold tields. arrived in the city 
today for a tew days' business visit. 
Mr. Randolph says that there is much 
activity in tiic Rainy Lake district this 
season, the large.«t work being the 
construction of the Winnipeg & Rainy 
River railroad. A large number of 
men are employed on that and good 
I-rogres.s is being made. Mr. Ran- 
dolph does not lielieve the new road 
will lie completed by this fall, as was 
anticipated at first. The railroad com- 
pany will build a bridge over Rainy 
lake two and a quarter miles long, and 
work or. this bridge has not yet be- 
gun, although the material for It is 
nearly all on the ground. With the 
coming of the railroad, he says that 
settlers are dropping into the Rainy 
Lake country and locating along the 
new railroad line. Lsist year the lakes 
and streams of the Rainy Liake country 
were very low on account of drouth, but 
Mr. Randolph say they have plenty of 
water for all purposes now. alth.^ugh 
there has been but little rainfall this 

spring. The weather there has bc-en 
quite warm, as warm for some time as 
it has been in Duluth today. 

He says that the only mining oper- 
ations now going on at Mine Center arc 
at the Golden Star mine, where new 
shafting Is being put in and dritting 
is being pushed ahead steadily. The 
('live mine will resume operations in a 
few days. Mr. Randolph looks for a re- 
newed activity in the district, gteater 
than it has ever Ijefore experienced as 
soon as the railroad is an accompl'shed 
fact and the district has all the faci- 
lities to help it along that usually fol- 
low railroad building into a good Ci.un- 
try that never before had trans- 
portation facilities.

Of Final Census Report 

Issued By Director 


Washington. May 31.— The director of 
the census today i.«sued the first half 
of the final census report on population, 
showing the aggregate population of the 
United States by states and territories, 
the density of population, the center of 
pcpulation in its medium point, the 
population of Alaska and of the Ha- 
waiian islands, the number of repre- 
sentatives apportioned under the re- 
cent act of congress, and also the popu- 
lation of the state? and territories by 
minor civil divisions, the population of 
cities having 25,000 inhabitants or more 
in 1900. 

This report is issued in the form of a 
monograph and comprises about 5'K) 
pages! The other portion of the final 
report on population will be issued dur- 
ing the early fail, putitng the entire 
volume in the hands of the public at 
least four years in advance of any pre- 
vious census.

Tamorrow Duluth will see the ter- 
mination o a feud, and the termination 
will be a fit ending to the preceding 
battles. Amid tiie cries of thousands and 
the blowing of trumpets, amid gaily 
dressed throngs end flaunting banners, 
tomorrow afternoon, at 3 o'clock, a care- 
wcan individual will step to the middle 
of the Driving park and shout "Piay 
ball." And then will stride up feroci- 
oi:sly. with glittering eyes and firm 
jaws, grasping a great club of hickory 
in his brawny hand.>;, a warrior arrayed 
in brilliant colors of red and white, 
while an enemy, with bated breath and 
fearful arm, soaks in a leather-covered 
sphere. The red and white man, swing- 
ing his club, will connect, short circuit 
the ball, and rush into the midst of his 
e.-.emies. even into the Jaws of one who 
has great leather-ccA-ered hands, while 
the careworn individual, smiling sadly, 
8ay.s, "Fair ball— safe on first"— and the 
game will be on. ' 

Tomorrow afternoon, at, the Driving 
park, the Duluth Ceftral'- High school 
will play baseiiall with the Superior 
Normals at Onoeta park, and a large 
number of rooters from both schools will 
be out to see the game. 

It is the only game that the Duluth 
high schDol will play at home, but un- 
doubtedlv it will be one of the fastest 
gaces ever seen on the diamond here. 
Duluth has not been defeated this season 
and has been playing exceptionally good 
ball all year. Potter, behind the bat. 
has had only two passed balls during 
the season. Al Cummings. the ambidex- 
trous, in the box. has had a WDnderful 
recr.rd this season. Alworth, who has 
{.itched and played second, is a steady, 
sure man in both positions, while both 
the In-field and out-fleld have had very 
few errors credited to them. AH of ti.e 
men are goad, sure batters, and a profes- 
sional at Cloquet was the only man they 
found at all discomforting, and they 
found him soon enough to win the game. 

The Superior team remains practically 
the same as last year, with the excep- 
tion of the pitcher, who is now teaching. 
In his place they have found an Indian, 
who is a whirlwind when it comes to 
speed, but the Duluth team does not 
geem to be much afraid of him. It prom- 

ises to be the best garne in which the 
high school will participate this year. 

The line-up of neither team has been 
yet definitely decided upin. but the Du- 
luth team will probably play in the same 
positions as in the former games.

Why Dr. BilTy's Triends 
Treated Him So. 

Dr. Billy Grecnleaf gave a dinner a few 
nights aga to some half-dozen i)arched 
brutes who Jeered at him while tliey 
swilled his champagne. Later the doc- 
tor intends to build a temple to truth, 
says the New York Sun. 

Dr. Billy was married a year ago to a 
young woman who picked him out of 
numerous candidates, and the honey- 
moon has shown no sign of waning ex- 
cept on Saturday nights. On that night 
weekly Dr. Billy relapses Into prenuptial 
savagery and plays poker at his club 
with the same band of smirking degener- 
ates t£iat he played with in his bachelor 
days. Even on these nights it is of rec- 
ord he has occasionally found the allure- 
ments of his fireside too strong, and the 
waiting squad at the club has besa 
obliged to drag him out with entreaties 
and imprecations by telei)h<me. 

One night not long ago, however, they 
didn't succeed, and that is the beginning 
of this story. Dr. Billy had to go out 
of town on Saturday morning and didn't 
expect to get- back until 10 o'clock that 
night. So he told the crowd to begin 
the game without him and he would get 
around between half-past 10 and 11. But 
he had a hard day, and when he got 
liome the prospect of playing poker for 
four or five hours didn't appeal to him. 
The upshot of it was that instead cf 
going to his club Billy and his wife went 
to bed. Dr. Billy has a telephone in his 
office downstairs, but when tie goes to 
bed he connects a switch line with his 
bedroom In case he Is called up In tne 
night Tills night he had been In bed 
perhaps an hour when the telephone bell 

"I guess that's the poker crowd," said 
Billy to his wife. "You'd better get up 
and answer it." 

Billy's wife got up, and after a moment 
at the telephone whispered across the 
room: "It is the poker crowd. Mr. Ner- 
val w ants to speak with you." 

"Oh thunderation," yawned Billy. 
"Ask him if he can't give his message to 

ycu." , ^ ., 

"No; Mr. Nerval wants to speak to the 
doctor personally." 

"Well, tell him he can't speak to me, 
said Billy. "If I listen to him he'll have 
me down there in spite of myself. Tell 
him I'm sick." 

■■'Dr. Greenleaf is " began Mrs. 

Billy into the transmitter. 

"Wait a minute." interrupted Billy; 
"that won't do. They won't believe It. 
Tell them I expected to get home, but 
that I was kept out of town over night." 

Billy's wife communicated this infor- 
mation, after which she and Billy slent 
in peace. The following Monday Billy 
met Nerval on the street and began to 
tell him how sorry he was. But he didn't 
finish. Norval acted queer. He seemed 
weighed down with sorrow and his voice 
was that of a man offering condolence 
at a funeral. 

"That's all right, old man." he said, 
laying a heavy hand on Billy's shoulder. 
"We were sorry, too, very sorry." 

Then he looked into Billy's face for 
one moment with heavy eyes .*ind went 
his way. 
"What the deuce is the matter with 

Norval?" thought Billy. "He 
though he had lost his money." 

At luncheon that day Billy saw Sne- 
decker, another of the poker crowd, at 
an adjoining table. But when Snedeckcr 
saw Billy, Biliv noticed that tie looked 
swiftly away and that his features took 
on a lugubrious cast. 

"Hello, Sned," Billy called across. 
"Come over here and feed." 

"No, thank you, old man," croaked 
Snedecker. "I'm about through." He 
nodded funereally at BitTy, and after a 
few moments got up and went out. 

Billy didn't know what to make of It. 
He ran across the rest of the crown in 
the course of the next day or two. They 
tried to avoid him. When he cornered 
them, they looked at him with pitying 
eyes and got away as soon as possible. 
Then he met Snedetker again. Snedeck- 
er was laughing when Billy came upon 
him. but when Billy spoke Snedecker's 
Jaw dropped and his eyes glazed. Billy 
waited till the other had gone. Then he 

said: , ^ , ., 

"Look here, Snedecker: what the devil 
is the matter with you fellows?" 
Snedecker looked at the ground. 
"W^ny, I don't know what you mean." 
he said. "Say. old man, you'll excuse 
me, won't you? I've got to run for a 

They played poker the next Saturday 
night. The crowd was talking when 
Billy came In, but that moment a pall 
fell on the room, and the rest of the 
evening was more like sitting up with 
fne dead than a social game. Billy and 
Norval generallv walked home together, 
but on this night Norval started alone. 

"Just a moment." said Billy, "and 1 11 
be with you." ,, 

"If you'll excuse me, old man Be- 
gan Norval. 

"I won't excuse," said Billy, gettinp: 
into his coat and following aftor. V'hen 
they got to a retired place Billy took 
Noival by the lapels of his coat and 
oacked l.?m up against a fen-e. "Now 
look here," said Billy, "I'm going to find 
out what all this means or I'm gomg 
to punch your head. Every one of vou 
fellows has been avoiding me for a week, 
and when I force myself on you, you act 
as though I were a criminal or a leper. 
Now nut with it— what's up?" 

"Whv mv dear old boy. I'm sure 
you're mistaken." said Norval. hollowly. 
■••There's not a thing " 

"You're a damned liar." said Billy, 
shaking him. "Out with it." Billy is a 
big man. . , ,. 

"Billy, old fellow," said Norval, you— 
vou mustn't ask me." 
* "Out with it." ordered Billy. 

"I— I don't know," stammered Norval, 
••perhaps vou ought to know. Only re- 
member I should never have told you if 
you hadn't insisted and lf,we wernt 
mighty old friends-migtity old friends. 

"W^ll?" asked Billy, getting excited. 

••You remember last-last Saturday 
night— you were out of town, you know 
—didn't get home -" 

"Yes. ;?o <.n." said Billy. 

••Woll-we called up the house, you 
know, by telephone. Mrs. Greenleaf an- 
swered. We had to ring several times,

asleep, guess— and she answered the

standing there. He saw some of them 
the next day and they wabbled their 
heads at him and hastened away. Billy 
didn't pursue them. They seemed to ba 
trying to keep back tears. 

Two days later each one of the crowd 
got a note from Billy. These were not 
couched in elegant nor polite language, 
but they conveyed the information that 
instead of ptker the following Saturday 
night there was to be a dinner, with 
Billy as host. It was to be a champagna

they had their legs under the table.

fiflds is engaging the serious alteutiwa o£ 
the British home government. An oHlcer 
of the roval engineers in its service re- 
centlv returned to India from this coun- 
trv after collecting all the Information 
possible and giving orders for machinery 
for working the low grade ores of the My- 
sore gold lields, says the New York Sun. 

These ores are said to resemble those or 
South Africa and Australia, which can ba 
prnfuablv treated only by the cyanide pro- 
ie«s, but there was some doubt as ta 
whether the reefs were extensive enough 
to justlfv the investment of capital la 
working them. Exploration which ha» 
been going on for several years, has 
proved that the ore Is In abundance, and 
the onlv question that remained was aa 
to the character of the power to be used In 
driving the machinery required to extract 

It was In connection with this part of 
the scheme that the officer referred to 
visited this country. The various systems 
of working were carefu'.ly studied, and it 
was finally decided that machines worked 
with compressed air should he employed. 
Th<=' difficultv that still presented itselt 
■was as to the method of compressing tho 

Steam power was out of the question, 
and the nearest available water power la 
about 100 miles from the fields. The engi- 
neers in England. Germany, Be.gJuni 
and France who were consulted were not 
able to give a satisfactory solution of It. 
Finally he turned to this country. After 
several months of working and experi- 
menting the difficulty was overcome and 
means were found by which electrical 
power could be transmitted over the 100 
mjles Intervening be^.v^?eni the water 
power and the gold fields and at the 
latter bv m<>ans of new machinery used in 
the production of compressed aii\ 

The result of tiie mission of ihe agent 
of the British ]nc!.iu government y* thl« 
ccurtry has been oi-ier-; for cinsid- 
erablv more than a million dollars w-orth 
of machinery have been given, and by 
next summer American machinery, worked 
hv American engineers, will be set up In 
Mysore to add to the world's productloti 

° T^'e estimate is that when these Mysore 
Kcld fields are fully developed they will 
> ield from thirty to forty-five ralldons ot 
dollars' worth of gold annually a", a very 
fair i>rcf;t.

Athletes Administered 
Severe Defeat to Prince-

Races between sailing ya^ts have be- 
come common enough, but the pra«:tioe 
of raring steamships has gone out of 
fashion since the days of the racea of 
\he Mi.«sst3sippi river packets in the s^od 
©Id times, wlien It was the practice to 
put a little nigger on the safety valve in 
case of an exciting finish. Th-'re u^ed to 
|>e some racing between HM.i>..n liv.-r 
lioats. but it was discourag. d, and it may 
Tbe taken for granted that few >>f the 
fire^eit gf>neration Ik; ve i ver seen a 
#tpam.'?hip race. 

Tho.^e who want to see one can have 
their curiosity gratified by visiting 
iCleveland on Tuesday. June 4. when 
lUipre is to be a race between two big. 
tifw, fast steamships ov. r a nurse 100 
fntles in length. To be exact, the racing 
Steamships will start from Cleveland 
and will steam to a point abreast of the 
^^resqu He light at Erie. Pa. 

The news of the coming race has creat- 
ed much Interest in the lake districts. 
and there are to be big excursi<ms from 
all the ports on the great lakes to the course, in order that the 
interested crowds may see the race. 
ehicag'-ans have already prepared for 
the event by trying to charter the big 
"•kiiaUback steamship Christopher Lo- 
lunibus to take a crowd of Chicago men 
to the rare. It Is pmpo.ied to make a 
«uick run with this big boat down Lakes 
.Michigan and Huron. This will give 
ipjole a chance to see what the whaie- 
toack can do in a long stretch of deep 
inater. Instead of on her usual little .'ium- 
tner Job of coasting between Chh-ago and 
Milwaukee. It is said. also, that the 
Christopher <:olumbus is 'he only avail- 
able passenger steamship which pos- 
eesses .sutflclent engine power and speed 
lo keep abreast of the racers and be near 
the winner at the finish. ^ «v„

to see that no tricks are played with

Ithaca. N. Y.. May .11.— Cornell oars- 
men proved their worth once more in 
the two- mile race on Lake Cayuga yes- 
terday, their second crew rowed across 
the finish easy winnere over the second 
crews of Columbia and Pennsylvania. 
Coach Courtney's men showed splendid 
form, and in addition possessed weight 
and power superior to their opponents. 
They rowed to victory In the excellent 
time of 10:52, lowering the record f n- 
the course, made two years ago by 
thirty-four seconds. Columbia was sec- 
ond, finishing in 11:02. and Pennsyl- 
vania made the distance in ll:08Vj. The 
Ithacans had a lead of 2\i lengths oil 
C*»lumbia. and the New York crew had 
about the same advantage ovtr the 
Pennsylvania oarsmen. 

The llhacans were first to cat^-h the 
water, and in the first dozen strokes 
they had shot their shell nearly a length 
in front. They continued their good 
work for a mile and three-quarters and 
led Cornell until the half mile point was 
passed. Both Cornell and Columbia left 
Pennsylvania behind shortly after the 
start of the race. The Pennsylvania 
crew apparently lacked the power, and 
Cornell found her real rival the Colum- 
bia crew. 

After the mile and a half point wa« 
passed the contest was no longer in 
doubt. Cornell reached thirty-eight 
strokes to the minute in the hist 100 
yards, and continued to increase her 

Pennsylvania drew up slightly "n Col- 
umbia, but was unable to cut down the 
big lead of the New York crew. 

The contest was rowed under favor- 
able conditions nolwith-standing the 
threatened storm of the early morning. 
The sky brightened and the sun shone 
for a few minutes in the afternoon. 

Ten thousand |)er»ons went to Percy 
Field prior to the race to witness the 
dual meet between Cornell and Prince- 
ton. By .' o'clock, the time appointed 
for the observatbm train to leave for 
the racing course, 4000 persons had 
assembled at the finish mark in the 
neighborhood of Renwick Bf.uh land- 

About 3500 had seats on the Lehigh 
observatii>n train. Enthusiastic chr-er- 
ing of Cornell's admirers when they 
savv their favorites pull into victo.-y 
drowned the shouts of the coxswains, 
and during the few minutes the r.^ce 
was on the Interest was Intense. Cor- 
nell's crew was greeted with waving of 
flags, cheering and blowing of whistles 
of steamers gathered around the finish 
iwint. all making noise that was deaf- 

Ithaca, N. Y.. May 31.— The Cornell 
athletes administered a .severe def.;at to 
the Princeton team yesterday. Out of 
104 points the Ithacans took 64, this t>e- 
ing liy far the best showing ever mad'^ 
bv Cornell in this branch of sport. 

The track was heavy" and the weath?r 
conditions v-rv unfavomble for record 
smashing, yt Sears, the freshman won- 
der, lowered the Cornell record in the 
IDO-yard do.'^h. the oflRclal time b»»lng 
10 l-.'i sei'onds. His work in this event 
W.W, according to s.)me tim»»rs. faster 
than ten seconds flat, but it is thought 
that under favorable c.mditions he 
could have equallpd the intercollegiate 
record. He also carried off the r|uart-^r- 
mile event with ease in 52 4-.'. se.-ands, 
and won the 22-yard dash by a gO'Xl 
margin in 22 4-5 seconds. (Jallagher un-

was elected captnin of the Yale 
for 1902. All the finish'^;, were close nnd 
the track was good. The finish in the 
f]uarter-mile, when inches separated 
the first four, was s<i clo.><e the 
judges made the mistake of placing the 
third man first, but afterwanl rectified 
the error.

Secretary Hill Calls One 
For Next Tues- 

Secretary Thomas E. Hill of the Du- 
luth Improvement company has taken 
ttie initiatory step in the matter of 
business men's excursions by calling a 
meeting of the business men at the city 
hall al K o'clock > n Tuesday evening. 
Mr. Hill says that if he is in error re- 
garding his note of warning to the mer- 
chants, now Is the proper time to correct 
it, and at this meeting the question will 
be discussed by the merchants and in- 
tere.sted citizens. Mr. Hill says that if 
the sentiment Is for business men s ex- 
cursions for the purpjse of bringing 
shoppers from the surrounding towns to 
Duluth to trade at stated intervals, 
then the Improvtinent association is 
ready to fall in line and help to make the 
excursions a success by working in har- 
mony wild the merchants. If the idea 
is t » keep the visitors in the city ov^-r 
night the as80ciaiii>n stands ready to 
offer 'valuable aid in the matter of fur- 
nishing lodging places for the crowda.

Association Elects Officers 
For Ensuing Year. 

New York. May 31.— Maj. Richard 
Sylverton of Washington. D. C. was 
sel' t-i: )Of.-ident of the National ^\aso- 
ciation oi Police Chiefs today by a vote 
of 31 to 49: Deputy. Police Commi.^ioner 
William Devery of New York was se- 
ie.Jted vice president. 

l>ev»'ry's selection was by acclama- 
tion. Harvey O. Case was re-elected 
secretary and treasirer. Those chosen 
on the board of directors are: Chief J. 
J. Donahue of Omaha and Benjamin 
Howard, of Richmond. \'a. 

The association voted to meet next 
year in Louisville. Ky. Commissioner 
Hencheil of Cincinnati read a pajier on 
"The Police of London." As a preface 
he made a plea for the larger liberty of 
the chief, and contrasted conditions in 
the German cities, where everything is 
oi'en Sundays, with Glasgow, where he 
found it imiiossible to buy even a cigar 
on Sunday. 

"What may have suited pastoral 
times and towns." he said, "is not suit- 
able for the present times and great 

Mayor Jones of Toledo addressed the 
con\>ntion. 'I'm glad to l>e with you." 
he iitE,Mn. 'I alway.» like policemen 
when tliey are not trying to arre.^t any- 
one. I was especially pleased to be here 
to hear Mr. Henchell's plea for a larg&r 
llterty. and observe that most of you 
applauded his sentiments. Too much 
restraint is far worse for the average 
city than too much liberty. I hope to 
see the efficiency of a policeman mea- 
sured liy hi-.^ service to the people. I 
hojM? to see the time when each police- 
man will know it Is his duty to make it 
easy for the good to be good, and hard 
for the bad to be bad."

The Armored Canine Who 

Saved Chicken From 


Worked Well as Long as 
He Held to His 


Is Iron Wage Scale Con- 
sidered By Convention. 

Jililwaukee, May 31.— The puddling, 
busheling and scrapping clauses of the 
iron scale were considered at the first 
session of the Amalgamated Associ- 
ation of Iron. Steel and Tin Workers* 
convention today. It is underst.x>d 
this part of the wage committee's report 
was adopted and that the figures will 
be based on a puddling base of )5 and a 
1-cent card rate. The bar iron section 
came up this afternoon. 

"Si Hasklns' armored bulldog took a 
long and successful whirl at the strenuous 
life game, ' remarked the old guide remin- 
Iscently to the party gathered about th« 
evening carapflre. "But in the end he irlet 
downfall and disaster, owing to an in- 
flated chest and an ajubition to fight out 
of his class. The death of Pete, as he 
culled the bulldog, was a grievous blow to 
Si." says the New York Sun. 

*• 'A dog that was a credit to himself 
and his worthy owner!' said the good old 
man. mournfully, aa he looked at Pete's 
flattened remains. "And now it I want to 
give him honorable burial. I'll have to 
use a couple of barn doors for a cotlin.' 

"Si hod been the owner of an unusually 
fine lot of chickens, which he kept in hta 
back yard. Bt-tween the e^gs and the sjxie 
of the chtckons ht< was making a good 
thing out of it, but found that his feel- 
ings were lacerated and Uis profits cut 
down by tlie inroads of wildcats, who used 
to l>e pretty frequent in these parts. Once 
in a while Si would bring one down with 
his gun, but for the most part, wildcats 
were njght workers. And even his affec- 
tion for his prize chickens couldn't keep Si 
up watching for wildcats on a cold night. 

■ "Dead chlcktius can be replaced.' Si 
Ufced to say feelingly, 'but there's only one 
of Si Hasklns. The community would 
never forgive me if 1 let hlai get his death 
of cold through my own careUssne.fS.' 

"One day a neighbor sugge^sted that Si 
should get a bulhlog and put it near the 
hon<.'oop to guard against the wildcats. 
The idea of deleg.ating the watching in 
the cold to some one else pleased Si up to 
the limit. The next lime he went to town 
he lx>ught a bulldog. The dog had a deep 
chest, heavy undershot jaws and looked as 
if he W'vs spoiling for a tight. 

'• "Lijok at the Intelligent air and heavy 
Jaws of that dog,' said Si admiringly to 
me. "Once let him get a grip on a wildcat 
and an inquest will l)e the only thing that 
will interest ilie furry marauder.' 

"I didn't know so very much about bull- 
dogs, l>ut r had some exiniriences with 
w-ildcats and 1 was doubtful of the suc- of Si's scheme. I didn't say anything 
to discourage him, though. That night 
Si fastened the bulldrog near the hencoop 
and went to bed rejoicing in the thought 
of the coming slaughter of wildcats. 
About the middle of the night there was a 
turmoil out nt ar the hencoop. Si heard 
the noise, but didn't disturb himself about 

" "One more wildcat gone to the great 
beyond,' he observed, placid like. And 
then he turned over in bed and went to 

"In the morning Si found he had made a 
mistake In his great l»eyond propositton. 
On the ground near the hencoop he found 
the Ixjdy of the bullilog. It looked as if it 
had been put throug-h a stone crusher. 
The d.jg had evidently tackltxl the wild- 
cat, but a wildcat Is more than a match 
for a bulldog any night, and the protector 
of Si's hens had been practically torn to 
pieces. Then to add insult to injury, tho 
wildcat had prowled around until he found 
an entrance to the hencoop. He crept in, 
killed half a dozen of Si's fowls and then 
made his way back to the woods. 

"SI wasn't discouraged at the result of 
his eixpt-rience. but imported another bull- 
dog. It met the fate of the lirst. He 
tried two or three more, but it was evi- 
dent that when they went against wild- 
cats they were out of their class. The 
good man was mightily annoyed. 

" "Seems to me my system Is productive 
of a great waste of bulldogs.' he said to 
me moiirnfully, "but I cant see that it is 
making many vacancies iK'side the tlre- 
sldes of happy wildcat homes.' 

••And the old man trudged gloomily 
away. The next d.iy he caliid over at my 
house. Hut thi.<» lime ho had the happy, 
contented look of a man who had hit upon 
some discovery that will be of k>enertt to 
others and himself. 

" •! knew that when your Uncle Si's 
brain once got to running under full head- 
way 1 would strike some way of solving 
the wildcat-hen-bulldog problem. Now 
what is the stmng'-sl an<l most prominent 
ixulnt In a bulldog's anatomy'?' he asked. 

••1 allowed that it was In his jaws and 
his biting caixitbllltles that a bulldog ex- 
celled. , , „, 
•• 'To be sure, to be sure, replied Si. 
in the tone of a man who has gained an 
Important pi>int in an argument. 'But the 
rest of the nut.ible creature 3 body is not 
proteiCte<l from attack. Now in the olden 
times who were the main guys when it 
came to putting up a fight? Why the 
armoretl knlyhts to be sure. And it was 
that fact tiiat gave me the idea which I 
um going to use for the slaughter of per- 
nicious anl annoying wildcats." 

••I didn't quite understand what Si was 
driving at. ... 

•• '.\nd are you going to knight your 
bulldogs'." 1 queried puzzled like. "The Or- 
der of the Sacrfd Bulldogs might be im.>|>- 
niar with flic dogs, hut 1 can't .see where 
it would affect the wildcat-killing game. 
I've h»-^rd of belted earls, but belled bull- 
dogs is a new one to me.' 

••Si looked at me as U he was amazed a 
man could be so dense. 

" 'It's no new order of chivalry among 
bulldogs that I'm thinking of establish- 
ing,' he answered Impatient like. 'Wha.t 
made the knights such hot articles in their 
day was the fact that they wore armor. 
And I'm thinking that a bulldog e<iulpped 
in the same manner wt^uld maJte any wild- 
cat that attacked him mighty sick.' 
"1 didn't approve of his pUm. 
•' 'Turtlts have shells and wildcats have 
fur.* 1 said solemnly. "Bui nature never 
Inteniled bulldogs should be armored. In 
my opinion, ironclad l)undo£rs are tlylng in 
the face of Provldenee and there will no 
gijoil come to the Invention.' 

"Hut SI only sneered and said that iron- 
clad bulldogs couldn't fly in the face of 
anvone. let along Providence. 

" 'Besides, it's dead wildcats rather than 
spiritual blessings that I'm looking for,' 
he added, obstinate like. 

••So SI set to work, and after a good 
deal of work managed to make a .sort of 
suit of armv>r, as he cralled It. It was part 
leather, but in the places where he 
thought a wildcat would be most likely 
to get in its work with its claws Si mide 
the armor of little links of s-teel. Then he 
went to the city and Ixnipht a big and un- 
commonly ugly-looking bulldog. 

"When he got the dog home SI adjusted 
the suit of bulldog armor on him. The dog 
didn't titke kindly to the scheme and at 
first tried to test his teeth on SI. But 
there wasn't any use trying to get rid of 
the armor, and after a little. Pete, as SI 
had nametl him, got used to it. Ttien Si 
determined it was time to put his idea to 
a practical test. 

"The next day we started out in the 
woods, and after a little came on the 
track of a wildcat. We traced it to near 
the cat's den. Then Si and I hid in the 
bushes, sending Ptte up tho trail toward 
the den. We judged that if we kept out 
of sight the wildcat would put in a prompt 
appearance and endeavor to give Pete a 
l.'sson on the evils of interfering with 
wildcat domestic lelations. We were right. 
Pete hadn't any more than got fairly 
started up the trail when the wildcat 
came hiking down. 

"The wildcat was looking for trouble. 
Pelt was always ready for a fight, so they 
started to mix it up without delay. A bull- 
dog in a tight has an honest, earnest way 
alHjut him that a man can't help respect- 
ing, but he is slow compared with an ac- 
tive and angry wildcat. This oni- circled 
about Pe-te for a couple of seconds, look- 
ing for an opening. Finally the cat saw 
it, mode a <iulck leap, avoided Pete's snap, 
and landed squarely on his back. Then 
the wildcat started to give a scientific ex- 
hibition of the way teeth and claws ought 
to be used. 

"Burt, the Instant he tried this he was the 
most astonished and disgusted wild.-at In 
that p»art of the state. His teeth couldn't 
penetrate thc> thick leather of the armor, 
while his claws got tangled in some of 
the links of ste.»l and almost brokeji. The 
wildcat Jumped off and stiwd looking at 
Pete with the most astonished expression 
you ever saw on the coumenance of a 

" 'Docs I know and steal I'm familiar 
with,' tne wildcat seemed to be eajing to 
himself, but this combination is new, and 
il'8 an outrage to »prin« it on a respecta- 
ble wildcat.'; 

"A wildcat Is afhard fhin« to dl.scoura^e, 
though, and thisune c*me for Pete a sec- 
ond time. He gave Pete a scratch on the 
noae. Tlnyj l-^te grabbed him by the 
throat. Tho c*t whirled <yti his back, and 
began to brln9 his claws into play. Or- 
dinarily Pete Wuuld have bet»n half torn 
to pieces, liut the wilUcafs claws didn't 
make any impr< .salon on the armor. Pete 
held on after the single-minded maimer of 
bulldogs, and when he leLgo another wild- 
cat had joined the great majority. TIumi 
P«ter let go, and stood looking at us and 
wagging his stub tall, the proudest and 
happlttst dog In the slate. 

"And Si was just as happy as the bull- 

•• Talk about vour candklates for the 
Hall of Kame.'he said, expanding' his 
chest. •It seems to l>o that an especial 
nkhe is due the worthy old man who firm 
solved the problem of the externiilnalloa 
of wildcats by meuns of bulldogs.' 

"Everj' night after that SI chained the 
bulldog near the hencoop. For a time 
wildcats would visit t'he hencoops. Hut 
the .same cat never came twice. The pro- 
gram was alwavs the same. The furry 
Intruder. Illifd " with hunger and rage 
at the interforln^ bulldog, would go up 
against the armored game. There would 
be a little mlx-up ami then Pt ic would 
get his grip. After that it wa« a case of 
a<iditlon to the number of wildcat widows 
and Lncle Si's fur collection. 

'If Pete had onlv stuck to the wildcat 
killing stunt, he might have been alive 
today, the pride of Si's heart. Hut after 
killing al>out half a dozeji wildcats Pete 
became Impressed with the id*>a that he 
was invulneraide. At night, he was al- 
ways on hand for business near the hen- 
coop. Hut during the day he would wan- 
der itlxjut looking for fights. 

"He tackled all the dogs in the village 
and laid them out so easily that it didn t 
even amuse him. "Then he got to wandwr- 
ing about the woods, looking for new 
worlds, or rathrr new animals to conquer. 
1 warned Si that his pet would gel into 

" 'It's true that funerals have been the 
ixirtion of all animals that have tackled 
Pete up to datr." I sai.l rn Si, 'but if he 
tries to put all the aj>imais in the North 
Woods to tht: l>,id, he'll find that he has 
gone out of his class. I've noticed two or 
three bears in the woods lately. There 
isn't a sweeter tempered or kindlier ani- 
mal in the world than a black bear. But 
even the kindliivst of bears may get vexnd 
if an armr>r-clad bulldog gels to biting al 
his heels." 

"Hut Si didn't heed my kindly words. He 
said that Pete would know enough to let 
a bear alone, but even if he didn't, he 
would trust his pet to give a good acctjiint 
of himself. 

"A couple of days later 1 was hunting 
near the top of the mountAin, when look- 
ing down the valley 1 saw a big black 
bear. The bear was trudging along 
P«a<'eably, minding his own buslntss, 
when Pete broke through the brush. He 
begJin to growl at the bear. The bear 
looked at him in a reproving manner, as if 
to .say tho wikhIs were big enough for both 
and that there was no occasion for suc'n 
a display of bad temp«'r. 

"Hut by this time Pete had his head 
fllled with the idea that the woods be- 
longed to htm. He rushed up and grabbfod 
the bear by om of his front paws. The 
betir gave him a whack with the oih-^r 
that sent Pete rolling away. Then ihs 
bear looked at him more In sorrow than 
anger, as if he h.iied to have Iwen obliged 
to hit Pete. Tt»e bear lo<jked a little 
puzzled, too, fcg If he didn't understand 
why Pete wasn't hurt worse than ho had 

"Instead of being satl.'tned fete ma'.e t vo 
or three more rushes al tho bear. Each 
time the bear sent him ilylng with a blow 
from his paw. Hut Pete kej>t up his at- 
tack. At last the bear seemed to realize 
that bkiws with the paw didn't have any 
eiTect on Pote. 

"A bear Is an ^m.ixing intelligent ani- 
mal, and while this one didn't of course, 
understand cijciiy what armor wa.s, he 
appreciated thit Pete was protected in 
some way. S<' when Pete got read for 
his next rush, the bear looked at him as 
r^tiJ> ^.s to say: 'f .\ou instst on it, you'll 
feVi all that's c >mlng to you.' And when 
Pete rushed hi the bear Just folded him 
in his paws. 

"Armor was no pntt'-ctlon against that 
hug. When the bear dropi>e<l Pete. Si's 
pet looked as ii he had been caught under 
a pllodriver. The be.u" looked at Petf in a 
benevolently sorrowful, but satlslled sort 
of wav and ti ited placidly back into 
the wffodif • • JT" 

•• ••My iiiventlhn^was all right,' said Si 
mournfully, ■ whVn Me fouiwi the remains 
of his pet, 'but nothing ■.■•ss than a stCfd- 
clad battleship could bdve held out 
against that hug. Armortd bulldogs were 
far outclassed.' 


Scheme of Nan Who Brought 
In Diamonds. 

"If I had not served an apprenticeship 
Vltfc a jeweller," said a man who was 
once connected with the gevernmenL's 
secret service and now manages his own 
detective bureau, to the New York Sun, 
"I probably would have missed what I 
consider was the best stroke of bu.sine&s 
I ever did. It only goes to prove the old 
taying that there is no such thing as use- 
less knowledge. 

"I had been in the .=ecret service about 
two years, grubbing around on unim- 
Iiortant jobs because I was mly a 
youngster, when it was discovered that 
large qiuntities of diamonds were being 
smuggled into the country. The reput- 
able diamond dealers in New York gave 
the first information. Tfiat was in the 
fall of 1879. Some of the best detectives 
in the business had been assigned to this 
job, and it was well understood that the 
man who succeeded in running it down 
would find his reputation made. In the 
middle of November the cCiief of our de- 
partment sent for nie and said: 

*'Charlie. I think you are Just the man 
I want to work out my theory of the 
diamond smuggling. From my invfsti- 
gations I have reached the conclusion 
that the stones are brougeit into this 
country by way of Canada. I want you 
to go up to Riuse's Point on Lake Cham- 
plain and see if you can get any clue to 
this business there. Don't let even the 
custom house oflicers in that country 
l:now w hat you are, and draw on me for 

"That struck me as being a pretty 
blind sort of a commissi. m, but I was 
young and full of confidence in myself. 
I was thin as a rail in those days, and I 
got together a hunter's outfit and ar- 
rived at Rouse's Point after a week in 
the .\dirondacks. 

"In those days the through trains from 
Montreal to New York all stopped for 
breakfast or dinner at Rouse's Point. 
Having nothing to do I made the station 
my lounging place. I cultivated the ac- 
quaintance of the newsboys on the train 
and 1 kept close tap on all ttie passen- 
gers. My month lengthened into two, 
and at ttie end of that time I telegraphed 
my chief that I had a suspicion, and to 
verify it I was going to Montreal. 

"I wanted to born more of a certain 
Julius Kahnif Hefmade regular trips be- 
tween .MontVeal^nd New York, osten- 
sibly as an agent for a fire insurance 
company. Pe w^j? one of those boister- 
ous, hail-fellow sort of chaps who knew 
all of the trainmen by name. He tipped 
liberally. I had made some second-hand 
Inquiries about Ms insurance busines.^ 
with the result that I doubted his con- 
nection with; any insurance company. I 
learned that he stayed, when in Mon- 
treal, in a quiet little third-rate hotel on 
Notre Dame street. The best hotels In 
Canada in tho.«e days were none too 
good, and that a man of Khan's gener- 
ous tastes should stay in such a hotel 
was another suspicious circumstance. 

"Kahn did not know me by sight, .so 
that I felt myself safe in going to his 
hotel. People who come to such places 
from the states without any explanation 
are at once cla.ssed with the men for 
whom the law has punl^ment in store. 
I fostered this idea about myself, and 
two days after 1 was established in this 
hotel it was assumed by the other pat- 
rons of the place that I was a fugitive 
from tfie states. I had been there nearly

a week when Kahn arrived. He was 
greeted as an old friend by the landlord, 
and in due course of time I was intro- 
duced to him. 

"Kahn sized me up in accordance with 
the landlord's suspicions and we became 
very friendly. I discovered that he sel- 
dom left the hotel, and that he had no 
definite date for returning to New York. 
One evening as we were smoking to- 
gether the landlord came over to us and 
told Kahn that some friends of his were 
waiting for him in his room. Kahn left 
me and the next day I learned tiiat he 
had gine to New York. 

•'Acting bv my instructions, one of the 
men in the" New York office shadowed 
Kahn on his arrival and until he left 
town. Kahn stayed at an old hotel that 
stood near wtiat Is now the New York 
end of the Brooklyn bridge. None of the 
men who visited him was identified 
with the sellers of the cheap diamonds, 
and if my suspicions were correct I 
knew that I had a clever man to deal 
with. _ 

"Kahn came back to the Notre Dame 
street hotel a week later. The next time 
he went to New York I was on the train 
with him. and I was as indignant as he 
when customs officers came abjard as 
we crossed the line and made a very 
thorough scare*! of the baggage and 
clothes of every passenger. 

•' Don't kick,' said Kahn to me, It 
won't do any good. Let them go through 
you. If you make a fuss they may Iden- 
tify you.' 

"This remark, of referred to 
hi-? suspicion that I was a fugitive from 
justice I watched Kahn's examination 
closely, and when it ended without tna 
finding of any dutiable goods in his pos- 
session I concluded that I had made a 
mi<ttake. Kahn might be engaged in 
some sirt of crooked business, but it 
was not smuggling diamonds. 

"After the examination we went InLp 
the smoker. Kahn was In high good 
humor. He twitted me on my nervous- 
ness and told me to put up a bold front, 
and If I got into difficulties to let him 
know. He advised me to stay at his 
hotel I accepted his suggesttbn, for we 
were now on friendly terms. We reached 
New York early in the morning, and an 
hour after our arrival a man came into 
the dining room where we were at 

breakfast and greeted Kahn as an old 

" 'Well, how's business?' he asked. 

" 'I'm not complaining,' said Kahn. 
'My commissions are good.' 

"It was evident from the subsequent 
conversation that Kahn's friend wanted 
to get rid of me, but I stuck like a. 
brother. Finally he .said to Kahn: 

" 'Got a watch to swap?' 

"'Yes,' said Kahn; 'an old-fashl)ned 
bull's-eye with about half a pound of 
silver in the case and no works to speak 

" 'Let's see it,' said the friend. 

"Kahn pulled out a watch of a pattern 
that I knew from my experience In a 
jewelry store was very rare. It was an 
unusually big watch, and the works 
within were so lorjse that they rattled. 
The friend brought out a neat little 
.silver watch, and after some bantering 
the two men exchanged watches. I 
knew that Kahn's watch not silver, 
and his friend had given him a very 
good silver watch in exchange for it. 
Kahn left for Montreal the next day and 
I stayed at his hotel in New York. 

"The more I thought about the watch 
trade the more suspicious I was. When 
Kahn returned to the New York hotel a 
week later I was prepared for him. He 
greeted me cheerfully, and In the even- 
ing his friend came to call on him. Again 
I stuck close to Kahn. Finally his friend 
said: ^ . . 

Got any more bull's-eye watches to 
swap?' ^ ,. 

" -Yes,' said Kahn, 'I've ffot another 
big fellow that I picked up in Montreal, 
and he pulled out a watch that my ex- 
perienced eye told me was the same one 
he had swapped before. I expected some- 
thing of this sort. In fact, if it had not 
occurred, I had made a fool of myself. 

"After the usual bantering on a trade, 
another exchange of watches was made. 
and I suggested that we go Into the bar 
and have a drink on it. No sooner was 
the drink served than two of our special 
men, who had been leaning against the 
bar, pounced on Kahn and his friend. 
There was no fight. The officers showed 
their shields and their revolvers. 

" 'What's the charge?' asked Kahn. 

" 'Smuggling,' said I. and turning to 
Kahn's friend I said: 'I will trouhl- 
you ,for that bull's-eye watch. It has 

served fn this business long enoughf 

"They saw that the game was tip. 
There were no works in ttie watch, and 
the case was filled with as fine a collec- 
tion of diamonds as you ever saw. Kahn 
turned state's evidence and several small 
jewelers went out of business. My repu- 
tation was made. Had not my service In 
a jewelry shop trained my eye for 
watches I would never have discovered 
the fraud. It's the little things that 
count in my business." 

It's folly to suffer from that horrible 
plague of the night, itching piles. Doan a 
Ointment cures quickly and permanenitly.

Superior Defeats Duluth 
In a Pretty Base- 
ball Game. 

Batteries— Superior, Augustine and 
Bcott; Duluth, Staub and Sturgeon. 


Rattling Good Game Played 
At Aitkin. 

The Big Duluth team was defeated by 
the strong Aitkin team at Aitkin yes- 
terday afternoon. Al Cummings, the 
double handed curve worvder of the high 
school team pitched for the clothing 
store representatives and had he re- 
ceived proper support would have won 
the game. He struck out thirteen of 
Aitkin's heavy hitters and had splendid 
control as well as speed and curves. 

The Big Duluth team was badly 
broken up, having but four of the regu- 
lar players. This resulted in some 
rather costly error making. 

Aitkin has one of the fastest teams 
in Northern Minnesota and is constant- 
ly strengthening. The only defeat so 
far this season was administered last 
week when Brainerd defeated Aitkin, 8 
to 0. Kreholitz, the Aitkin twirler, 
struck out twelve men yesterday, 
following is the detail score:

John Nelson Is the champion shot of 
the head of the lakes. His fine shoot- 
ing yesterday aflernuon won the bead- 
tiful diamond badge, valued at $200. The 
shoot was for the final possession of this 
trophy. Twelve men who had won the 
badge in the preliminary eve.ntg during 
the past two years were entered yester- 

There was a good crowd out at the 
Central Gun club's grounds to see the 
shoot. It was a 100- bird event, shot off 
in strings of twenty-five. John Nelson 
and Dr. D. H. Day each br .ke 94 out of 
the posible 100, and 
between them 
Dr. Day's 19. 

It was about the best .=hnating ever 
seen on the Centi-al <;un t iub grounds. 
Only missing six birds out <jf 100 comes 
pretty near being a star performance, 
and Nelson's record for the day wa-3 
117 out of a possible 125. 

The diamond l«adge wa.s purchased by 
the meinljers of the Central fJun club 
and the Lake Superior Gun club during 
the season of 1899. In the early pre-

have been winning the av lal harxlily at 
the preliminary shoots., and it is the 
source of much sati>-facitii>n to the Du-

it is a question If a young couple with

contrary, but never in an undesirable 
neighborhood. Here the couple can fit 
up a pleasant little home. Boarding

is an extravagant one and girls' ideas 
have enlarged as to what constitutes

All Pleasure Spots Were 

Thronged With 


Though the flags at half-mast and 
the sad picture of the shattered rem- 
nants of the Grand Army of the Repub- 
lic marching to pay their respects to the 
nation's dead— a much larger band- 
showed that yesterday was not intended 
as a day of enioyment and pleasure, 
thousands of the people of this city took 
advantage of the holiday to crowd the 
dancing pavilions and pleasure apotu m 
various directions. 

While hundreds attended the me- 
UKirial exercises and rode to the ceme- 
tery to drape the graves of the dead 
with flowers, thousands saw the annual 
road race on London road, and other 
thousands spent all or part of the day 
and evening at Park Point. Lester Park 
or some of the other breathing places ot 
the city, all of which had on their 
freshest and prettiest garb in honor of 
the occasion. Now that the pavilion has 
been removed from among the pleasure 
resorts, the natural outing places are 
patronized more than ever, and Duluth 
is well etjulpped with them. 

The principal places, of course, are 
Lester Park and Park Point, and in 
both of these places there were throngs 
of people all day yesterday. There is 
always some excuse for seeking these 
places, even on a day when pleasure- 
seekiniT seems out of place and Jars the 
sensibilities of many. All nature was 
fre«h and green and delightful, and the 
ways were carpeted with fresh sprln:.< 
grass and spangled with the early 
flowers of the wood. 

Even In lesser places, such as Chester 
Creek and the i»arks nearer town, there 
were many people a-pleasuring, and the 
day— aside from its special siignlficance 
—was charming in every respect and 
tempting to those' who love the breath 
of the wbods as a relief from the every 
day grind of life In the city. 


Lawyers Who Argued 
Against the Govern- 
ment Are Hopeful. 

Chance That Decision of 

Court May Be 




Washington. May 31.— When the 
preme court resumes its sessions in 
tober a motion will be filed asking for a 
rehearing of the Downes case, which was 
made the m.edlum of^the court's decision 
sustaining the con.stitutionality of the 
Foraker act for Porto Rico. A conference 
of all the lawyers who argued the Insular 
cases against the government is to 
called between now and October to 
cuss the new points that will be 
and submitted to the court as 
of the motion for a rehearing. 

Former Attorney General Michoner, of 

the basis 

Bismarck— The supreme court has hand- 
ed down a decision affirming the .sentence 
of the lower court in the case of Mme. 
Massev, of Fargo, convicted of a second 
offense in the sale of intoxicating liquors, 
and sentenced by Judge Pollock to a year 
In the i>enitenliary. The supreme court 
finds that the judgment Is sustained by 
the cN-idence and Mme. Massey will have 
to serve her term. She has been a well- 
known character of Fargo. 

Hamilton— The monument erected to 
voung William G. Lamb, a soldier of the 
First North Dakota regiment who was 
killed in the Philippines, was dedicated 
here Thursday In the presence of an im- 
mense throng of people. State oftlclals. 
judges t)f courts, and many promnent 
in civil life participated. The monunnent 
was erected by the people of Pembina 
county, the home of the dead soldier. 

New Rockford— A term of district court 
is being held here this weeTc. Judge W. S. 
Lauder of the fourth district, presiding. 
There are eighteen civil actions and one 
criminal. Interest Is mainly centered in 
the disbarment proceedings agamst 
State's Attorney P. M. Mattson. His case 
will come to trial next Wednesday. 

Fargo— Judge Amidon of the United 
States, eourt has ordered the deportation 
of Fung Hen, Fung Chew «ml Lee Kee, 
three Celestials who came across the in- 
ternational boundary line at Portal some 
weeks ago. The Chinamen claimed to 
have formerly resided at Pittsburg and 
had the testimony of some people iden- 
tifying them. They failed, however, to 
secure the proper evidence from their al- 
leged p^irtners in the Smoky City and will 
be returned to the flowery kingdom. They 
are much depressed over the decision of 
the court and assert that their partners 
refuse to aid them, so thtiy would be abl« 
to secure all the property.

Coon creek, he says, after Investigation, 
is of no commercial value, and he doubts 
whether a dollar has been invested or 
promised by anyone having any knowl- 
edge of iron ore. . ,, 

The report of the iron find on the Man- 
lev farm has attracted considerable at- 
tention, and reports were that the Min- 
nesota Iron company and James J. Hill 
were negotiating for the property, offer- 
ine large figures f Jr options, and that 
there Is a large demand for neighboring 
lands suppcsed to contain ore. 

Professor Winchell is the state geolo- 
elst and professor of geology at the state 
uiilvereity. He has not only made a 
thorough study of the geological forma- 
tions of Minnesota, but he is recognized 
throughout the country as an authority 

'^"professor Winchell furnishes the Pio- 
neer Press the following signed state- 
ment: , , ^ * . *„ 

"I have Just returned from a trip to 
Anoka. I regret to say that the iron ore 
found there is of no commercial va'.ue 
whatever. It has no relation to the iron 
ore of the Lake Superior region, but Is a 
surface deposit such as is common in low 
ground, known as bog ore, and exists in 
many places. 

"It would be well If the subject were 
dropped by the newspapers, as such agi- 
tation, having no valid foundation, only 
iP'U'cs the stat^. 

-I don't think one dollar has been in- 
vested nor promised by anyone who has 
any knowledge of iron ore,"

discuss the desirability of asking for a

for the Republican nomination for presi-

tor a b-nor time that he intended to be 
in t£ie field. Upon what ground he bases 
his caiidilary is not stated, although 
Harry C. N.w, one of the Indiana lead- 
ers. as.Herts that he is "the logical can- 
didate" and will hav.- a solid Indiana 
delegation at his back. It i.s .said that 
the .senator'!* diief arguments are that 
he has had the confidence of the Mc-

and has been one of its chief advisers.

has been .v souice .if unfailing anius.^-

than he from giving thetn a::y cause for 
offense, but he lias uniformly given the 
impre-ssion that he was not frank, and 
that he was "feeling his way along." so 
to speak. He originates no policies. 
never takes a decided stand in the earlier 
stages of a debate, lacks personal mag- 
netism, and is essentially a follower 
rather than a leader. He is probably 
well w ithin the meaning of the words, "a 
safe man." Ttiere is in public no more 
striking onposite to Theodore Roosevelt 
than the sen it.>r from Indiana, 

Senator Fairbanks has made no secret 
of his ambition, and It has been known 
since the last presidential campaign that 
he intended to be a candidate for the 
nomination in 1904. He is a persistent 
worker and will undoubtedly have a 
good-.sized following in tSie convention, 
but his success is doubtful. Many 
thing.s are likely to hai>pen before the

The arrival of a party of Porto Ricans 
at Hcmolulu in a half-starved condition 
draws* attention anew to the deplorable 
londltion of many of the people In 
Porto Rico. Those who have gone to 
Hawaii and to South America were 
forced to leave Porto Rico because they 
were unable to earn sufficient to keep 
themselves from starvation. This is 
the plain truth, notwithstanding the 
rosy stories told by Governor Allen i-e- 
garding the improved conditions on the 
unhappy island. 

It is not necessary to base these as- 
sertions upon the starved condition of 
the Porto Ricans who have reached 
Honolulu or upon the statement.'* of 
Porto Rican representatives who have 
come to this country in behalf of their 
countrymen. The .\m«»rican Miasioii- 
ary association a short time ago sent 
two of its worwers, Rev. E. S. Tread, 
of Somervllie, Mass., and Rev. A. F. 
Beard, of New York, as representatives 
of their association to Porto Rico, with 
directions to diligently Inquire into the 
actual conditions which exist in the 
social, religious and material affairs of 
the people of that island. The represen- 
tatives of the society went to the isltind. 
performed their duty, have returned to 
the United States and have made their 
report. The story they tell is well cal- 
culated to arouse an intense interest 
in the minds of all honest and philan- 
thropic persons. Everywhere they 
went, and they visited all sections of 
the island, they found poverty, wretch- 
edness and despair. 

The story they bring back makes the 
heart sick. Ignorance, deprivations, 
disappointments, wretchedness and un- 
complaining patience were met at 
every hand. Hunger, disease, inflr- 
mltles crowd all wharves and ntarvation 
and death stared in the faces of the 
American missionaries, while pleading 
eyes and parched lips told the story of 
the broken faith of the conquerors, 
who had been welcomed as deliverers 
by that almost primitive people. In 
speaking of the neglect of the official 
life which the government of the 
United States has forced on the Porto 
Ricans the report of the mission&ries 

"All sorts of bodily deformities were 
displayed on the streets, such as blind- 
ness, twisted feet, dropsy. sores, 
bruised limbs, paralysis, women car-

There Is not a general hospital on the 
Island. One could be built at compara- 
tively small cost, but no attention is 
paid to its erection. The enjoyment of 
their official palaces— exhibitions of 
their ample gains for idleness and pom- 
pous and unnece-ssary equipages — em- 
ploy the time of the representatives of 
our government. No effort is mad-.- to 
alleviate suffering or relieve distress. 
Miss Dr. Alklns. connected with the 
Presbyterian mission of San Juan, says 
that she has from twenty-five to forty 
calls a day from patients who need 
hospital treatment, and many of whose 
lives are lost by her inability to give 
them hospital treatment- fur lack of in- 
struments to attend properly tu the af-

Only 40,000 of the 350,000 children of 
school age have the benefit of the 
pchols. More than 300,000 remain un- 
provided with school facilities. The 
children are pleading to be instructed. 
The poor things have been taught that 
if they become educated all good things 
will follow as their portion. Under 
this view they are seeking the school-, only to be turned away for the 
reason that the school rooms are al- 
ready crowded. 

Poverty, we are tofd. stalks every- 
where. All classes are to a greater or 
less degree sufferers from want of food. 
Trade has ceased. Markets once ample 
for the sale of the products of the island 
have been closed or are seriously im- 
paired by the imposition of restrictive 
laws. The crops are not gathered, for 
the reason that if housed they rot in 
their bins or boxes. Instead of Ihe 
advent of the United States. government 
being a blessing to the Porto Ricans it 
has been a curse— it has blighted the 
island more than if hurricanes had laid 
it all prosttate. In sight of these truths 
the United States official life within the 
island enjoys the emoluments which it 
does not earn— is placid and contented, 
though surrounded by the miserable 
conditions which each hour burden the 
native people.

as Mr. Herron and Miss Rand were united

requiring the filing of a copy of a w,Titten 
marriage contract where no ceremony

Jan. 1. 1902, and so Professor Herron and 
Miss Rand may be considered married in 
a most simple manner. 

The people of oNrth Dakota may well 
feel proud of the showing made by the 
state in the last decade. According to the 
report of the director of the census the 
value of manufacured products has in- 
creased nearly 100 per cent; the number 
of manufacturing establishments has in- 
creased over three fold and the amount 
of capital Invested has more than 
doubled. The report shows the value of 
the manufactured products of the state 
in 1900 were $,114. against $5,028,108 for 
1S90. The number of manufacturing estab- 
lishments were increased during the ten 
years from 3S2 to linO; the capital invested 
from $2,8!J4,D.=>3 to $5,3y6,4!«. There was an 
increase of (W per cent In the average of 
wage earners and of 61 per cent in the 
total wages paid. 

The statement of the inspectors at 
Honolulu that the Porto Rican immigrants 
who arrived the other day. were thorough- 
ly starved, and had to be detained and 
fed to recover sufficient strength to pro-

Allen knows but little of the condition of 
affairs in the Island he governs, or that, 
he purposely doctored hra reports.

(Copyright, 19(ri, William R. Miller). 
Here are the facts as I related them 
to the Society of Psychic Research. I 
have no comments to make on them, ex- 
cept that they are strictly true. 

The parting from Julia when I started 
for my four-week trip through Now York 
state was tender and tearful. We had 
just iillghted our troth, and it wiis iivex- 
preesibly hard to be separated for so long 
a time. Julia, however, promised to meet 
mie at Oldport, where her uncle resided, 
and there a day or two of bliss would 
break into the monotony of a prosaic 
business trip. 

When 1 arrived in Oldport. ten days 
later, there was a letter from Julia 
staling that her father had suddenly be- 
come indisposed, and it would be impos- 
sible for her to meet me. 1 called al lior 
uncle's house, but here, too, 1 was disap- 
pointed, for the place was lock-id, and I 
learned from the neighbors that the en- 
tire family had left tor Syracuse, where 
they were attending a wedding. 

In no ver> amiable state of mind, I re- 
turned to the hotel, the best roat- 
lery the villago afforded, and made myself 
comfortable. After supper I wrate a long 
leiier to Julia Ihon lighted a cigar and 
sallied forth for a strod. Suddenly, just 
as I turned a corner, I stopped with a 
shock of surprise. Ten feet In front of 
me. In the full glare of ein elecirlc light, 
stood Julia. I could have sworn to her 
identity. The gray tailor-made dress sh« 
wore, her jaunty velvet hat, were too fa- 
miliar to my eyes to be mistaken. Her 
face was turned in profile, and every 
lineament was that of my l)elo¥ed one. 

Was it possible -that her letter was but 
a joke, and she had come to surprise me! 
"Julia!" I cried, and sprang in her di- 
rection. Without a word of greeting she 
turned and walked away from me. I fol- 
lowed with cuntlicting emotions. At the 
next corner she turned, and when 1 saw 
her she was walking with a man who 
must have been waiting for her. Rage at 
once niied my heart, but it was quickly 
changed into surprise as I beheld In the 
newcomer a startling resemblance to my- 
self. I recognized my own ragian over- 
coat, my tan gloves and slouch hat; but, 
above all, 1 saw my own image as though 
in, a glass. 

Julia look the man's arm and walked 
on with himi hi eager conversation. She 
seamed to be pleading or begging for a 
favor, which he seemed to refuse. Pres- 
ently she joined her hands as if in suppli- 
cation and as she turnefl her head I saw 
tears in her blue eyes. To say I was mys- 
tllied puts it mildly. For a time I was in- 
capable of thought or action. Then a 
ludicrous idea struck me. Perhaps Julia, 
deceived by the resemblance, mistook this 
stranger for me! I determined to watch 
the outcome of this strange adventure. 
After a short Interval t*iy resumed 
their walk and stopped directly in fronit 
of the uncle's house, where, after some 
conversation, they went up the steps and 
disappeared within the house. 

A prey to conflicting emotions, I rushed, 
up the steps after them. The door was 
locked. 1 rattled the lock and rang the 
bell, but to no purpose. 

The perfidy of my betrothed was not ap- 
pare.nt. She had another lover and had 
evidently deserted me. A terrible grief 
gnawed at mv heart. I stootl a silent sen- 
tinel on the sidewalk in front of the door, 
with murder In mv heart, fully decided 
to kill my rival on his exit from the hotose. 
Oil night long 1 kepi my dreary watch. 

Toward midnight a terrible storm arose 
—a perfe<t hurricane. Tlie rain fell in tor- 
rents and drenched m« to tno skin, rhe 
wind blew at a furious speed and I was 
obliged to seek refuge under the project- 
ing porch of the house to escape the limbs 
of trees and other missiles which the 
storm hurled through the atmospnere. I 
never experienced such a tempest. It was 
of short duration, for an hour later ihe 
moon was shining brightly upon the scene 
of wreck and ruin. 

I Mtood in my wet clothing till morning, 
waiting in vain for my perfidious Julia 
and her lover to emerge. At length, un- 
able to curb my anger. 1 stormed the rear 
of the house, broke ooen a kitchen win- 
dow, and searched tho premises. The 
house was empty! The lovers had evi- 
dently escaped! How. I knew not! 

Despondent. I returned to my holw. A 
vast concourse of excited people stood 
about the place, and I soon learned .if the 
disaster which had occurred. The hurri- 
cane of the night had broken ih^., sewer 
over which the hotel had bet-n built, and 
te rear portion had collapsed like a house 
of cards and was now a mass of ruins. 
The firemen were searching the debris 
for the bodies of the guest.s who were sup-

New York World: In the controversy 
between Mr. I^awson. the owner of the 
yacht Independence, and the New York 
Yacht club the sympathies of the public 
are instinctively with Mr. Lawson. 
public reasons that, whatever the techni- 
calities. Sir Thomas Liptons challenge 
is to all America; that the New Y'ork 
Y'acht club is the custodian of the Ameri- 
ca's cup for the yachtsmen of America; 
that its sole desire should be to send 
against the British challenger the best 
yecht which America can build; that Mr. 
Lawson, of Boston, is right in refusing 
to sail his candidate. Independence, under 
the flag of the New Y'ork Y'acht club, 
since ho Is not a member of It and does 
not wish Boston to be deprived -of any 
glory which might come Indepen- 

Let us see how the facts are related to 
the public instinct. 

The yacht America was built by a syn- 
dicate headed and inspired by John C. 
Stevens, the founder of the New York 
Yacht club. The America was not built by 
or under the auspices of the New Y'ork 
Y'acht club, and the famous cup Is won on 
Aug. 22, 1851, came into possession erf the 
New York Yacht club only by deed of 
gift, dated July 8. ISST. , , . 

That original and only binding deed of 
gift was conceived and written in the true, 
the broad spirit. It simply provided for 
the sailing of the best obtainable Amer- 
ican yacht against any foreign aspirant 
for the cup. - ^-01 

In that spirit the cup was defended 
twice, in 18S5 and again in 1886, by yachis 
flying the flag of the Eastern Yacht club 
—the Puritan and the Mayflower— and in 
1SR7 the cup defended Volunteer sailed as 
the iolnt renresentative of the Eastern 
and the New Y'ork Yacht clubs. 

But In 1S87 a new deed of elft was dt-awn 
UD— a xweposterous, illegal proceedmg. 
This contained a clause most offensive to 
the democratic spirit of this country and 
of the original donors of the cup. wh-) 
were the only persons having a right to 
fix conditions. The new condition made 
the America's cup not an American ciip, 
but a New York Yacht club cup. This 
proceeding would find a paral.el If at 
some future lime the trustees of the 
Carnegie free public libraries should make 
a new deed of gift excluding every one 
from the libraries except the trustees 
themcelves. ... , ., » .„ 

Clearlv. then, the puhlia. instinct is 
sound. Mr. Lawson Is right, and the New 
York Yacht club Is showng a spirit un- 
worthy of this city, unsportsmanlike un- 
American. It Is trying to make these 
races no longer International. But New 
York Yacht club affairs.

Tlie new viaduct across the Manhattan 
valley, from the terminus of Riverside 
drive to One Hundred and Tlilrty-fourth 
street, is now complete except for the 
northern approach. The broad asphalted 
roadw.iy rests upon graceful arches ol 
steel .md the footpaths on each .side are 
destined to become one of the yopula* 
promenades of New York, says the New 
York Sun. • , ^, 

The view of the Hudson and the ma- 
jestice Palisades from the viaduct is su- 
perb and on bright spring days, last Sun- 
day especially, thousands afoot, o*» horse- 
back, in carrUiges and on bicycles crowd- 
ed the ways. The only flaw is in the land 
view looking south. In that direction the 
archil. I tural beauties of Grant's tomb are 
almost wholly ob.scured by the CliieniJnt 
restaurant, a ramshackle frame building 
which is ptrmitled to rest upon one of the 
mosi beautiful sites on Manhattan island. 

The northern approach is planned to 
swing eastward In a graceful curve to a 
broad street which leads to the b<JulevaTd. 
The metes and bounds of the coiiiiiiuation 
of Riverside drive along Washington 
Heights have already been fixed and the 
extension will be undertaken as soon as 
tne municipal authorities authorizo the 
expenditure of the necessary funds. The 
new j.1rive, if ever built, will be no less 
picturesque than the old. its lines winding 
in and out along the edge of the historic 
heights with the same uninterrupted view 
of the river and the cliff-lined Jersey 
shore. , . 

The work of buibllng the extension 
would without doubt have been under- 
taken stveral years ago had it not been 
for 'he cupidity of certain property own- 
ers whose land adjoins it. Tlirough their 
influence an act was i>a8sed by the legis- 
lature absolutely fixing the route of the 
extension and making it mandatory upon 
the old board of street openings to adopt 
il without alteration. 

This was not discovered until after tne 
bill became a law and the board of street 
ojKjnings rebelled furiously when called 
upon to carry out its provisions. At first 
its members refused flatly to put the law 
into effect and only yieldea when the In- 
^,»re**"d property owners obtained a man- 
damus from the supreme court compelling 
them to obey the behest of the legisla- 
*ture. When it came Mayor Strong s turn 
to vote he said: 

•'As ^Mll'am L. Strong I vote no; as the 
mayor of the city of New York I vote 
aye" Every other member of the board 
voted in the affirmative under protest. 

It was then openly charged that the law 
was drawn In such a manner that tho 
property of certain citizens wouM be 
benefi'"d enormously by the extension of 
the drive, and the mAtler gave rise to a 
great deal of hard feelings on all sides. 
Probaoly for that reason no one has taken 
up the cudgels for the improvenrujnt Itt 
recent times.

Danger Point to Industry. 

Philadelphia Press: Prosperity never 
lasts long after the millionaire railroad 
managers begin to fight and labor begins 
to strike. Good times are no acc'de'it 
They nc-ve- come, as another good thing 
does, "without observation." They have 
to be worked for. They rest on a balance 
of profit, peace, industry, fffif'^:'>;. |"f 
expjansion. All have to work to get them. 
Anv small group can destroy them by 
needless difference. Rai'.road rows or 
strikes fast bring panics. The tlde.s of 
the ocean of business, finance and .ndus- 
trv are at high flood. A very Uttle folly 
will begin the Inevitabl e ebb.

The Skin 

Millions of little glan*!;* or tubes connect the blo<yi with the skin, and through 
Ihf'se Mnall drain pifx-s tierspiration pisses out, carrying with it the impurities that 
■re thrown off by the blood. vShould the pores of the skin be entirely closed lor 
even a brief space of time, and the poisonous matter forced back into the circula- 
tion instant death would result. In adilition to the sweat glands, the skin u 
provide<l with certain others which i>our out upon it an 01 y s^stance keeping 
the .skin pliable and soft and protecting it from beat aiid cold The blood and skm 
are so cloielv relaletl that whatever affecLs one seriou.sly interferes with the func- 
tions of the other. Not only health, but life itselt. depends up.^n perfect harmony 
between the blood and skin. When, therefore, the -_^^^^_. -» — *| 
blood becomes jK)isoned from any cause, it quickly tntCrnSil MnU 
manifests itself upon the skin in the form -.^^^_^^^ . o^r-,-.-,-, 
of sores and ulcers, pimples and various g,XWOrnai rOM9Un9 
cniptive diseases. By the character of the • .x. » , j 

•ore we are enableti to determine the nature of the poison or humor in the blofni, 
as evtn' di.sease originating in the bbxKi has its own |XH:uhar sore or pBnple. The 
skin is' not only affected by the poi.son3 generated in the system, but poisons from 
without enter through the open glands or pores and quickly infect the blood. 
Mercury rubbed upon the skin will produce Rheumatism, and Poison Oak an^ I^'.^' 
and other wild plauLs gain easy access to the blood through the skin As eo-called 

.skin dis<>ases originate in the bloo*l, the application

made a desperate struggle to avert the 
insidious advance of the disease by tak- 
ing a rest, but there was no relief. 
Finally he grew un; .mtrollable and in- 
sistvd on conducting his dental wo-k. 
It was necessary for me to go to thn 
office and watch him to prevent his 
patrons from discovering that he was- 
un balanced. 

• One early morning Just at break of 
day I awoke from a nightmare. I was 
dimly conscious that was stand- 
ing over me and peering into my face. 
I was thoroughly awake. My startled 
eyes beheld Jie standing there silent and 
immovable. I .«poke to him and .siM, 
'Joe. go back to bed.' T dominated him 
completely aft^r he lost his own control. 
He turned about without a wt)rd and 
ran back to his apartments. I drjpoed 
off to sleep again. 

"Once more I awoke with a start. He 
was there. I half rai.sed In bed and 
commanded him to return to his room. 
He retreated, sullenly this time. 

"I was aroused from slumber now and 
determined to pretend to sleep .so that I 
might watch him. 

"I heard a stealthy creeping on the 
floor. I saw him raise himself cautiously 
beside the bed, and to my horror a sur- 
geon's scalpel glittered in his hand. I 
looked him in the eye and .saw him quail 
as I told him in a firm voice to go away. 
As soon as he disappeared behind his 
door I locked it and went down stairs 
with ;he awful c<msciouhHess that my 
husband was a dangerous maniac, rioon 
he had removed the lock from his side 
of the door and came down stairs. He 
gathered up his razors and out of 
the room to the upper part of the house. 
Then I .^ent for the authorities and had 
him removed to an asylum. His case 
waJ pronounced hopeless, and I entered 
the professim of a trained nurse. 

"Do you wonder that I have been 
wrapped up in aur little daughter?" she 
asked, after the tense recital of her 


••1 h.-ive watched her with never-ceas- 
ing fear for some slight trait of her 
father's malady. She i.' a highly sen- 
sitive child with a vivid imaginathm. 
Her nature is somewhat somber, and 
.she is extremely thoughtful. Her .spirit- 
uality is highly developed and her artis- 
tic senses make me believe that with the 
proner advantages she jught to have a 
marked career. It has troubled me to 
think that I have not been in a position 
to give her these opportunities." 

The thought expressed in the last sen- 
tence is the essence of the prosecution's 
reason for the pr.ibable cmmission of a 
crime akin to that which sent Dr. 
Barnes so swiftly out of the world. 

Ferguson's allusion to a wealthy man 
whom he declares Mrs. Barnes told him 
she intended to marry has an establishM 
aspect in the view of the prosecutiin 
whii*i has secured the name of the 
Qulncy business man. a name used by 
the negro in his statement to Attorney 

^mith . , .. ,. J 

Mrs. McWllli-ims' part in the alleged 
plot is held to have been nothing more 
than that of an accessory, who. It is 
suggested, was influenced by a desire to 
further her daughter's interests.

Havana Taking Interest 

In Senatorial Contest 

In Illinois. 

Washington, May 3L-(Speclal to The

a good deal of interest in the eele-tion 
of a successor to Senator Mason, in Illi-

It is conceded, of course, that it is 
not necessary for the chairman of the 
national Republican committee to mter- 
fere in senatorial lights m any state. 
Mr Hanna however, has taken it upon 
himself to i,how the members of legisla- 
Vures in various sttiies, within the past

than theirs. Thoie are several cases in

rrve— In Maryland Senator Hanna'-s 
hand has been seen in the senatorial 
conte-sts witfi in the last year, but owing 
to the Khrewdnes? of former Senator 
Gorman he has failed in that slate. 
T'nless the unforeseen happens, Jlr.

ton in the upper branch of the national 

congress when the latter's term ex- 

Seiiator Hanna is anxious that Will- 
lam E Mason, senator from Illinois, 
shall be defeated for re-election when 
his term expiree. The Ohio boss, strange 
as it may seem, has a good man in view 
for Mason's successor. This gentleman 
is no less a per.son than Charles G. 
IXiweti, present comptroller of currt-ncy. 
There will be a very heated contest m 
the "Sucker" state when Mason "-oes 
before the legislature of Illinois for re- 
election. He has opposed the McKiniey 
administration policies for the laist four 
or live years, and therefore is not in 
touch with Maj. McKinlcy or with Sen- 
ator Hanna. In view of the fact aiat 
the administration controls a vast 
amount of patronage In Illinois, the 
prospects of Mason's re-election, handi- 
capped as he is by the opposition of the 
administration, are not bright 

It may be said to the credit of Maj. 
McKinU-y and Senator Hanna that they 
have decided upon a candidate to .'■iic- 
eeed Mason who will not only he accept- 
able to the people of that state, out to 
the country at large. It is conceded 
everywhere" that Charles O. Dawse is 
regarded as one of the brightest youn? 
men connected with this administration. 
He is a favorite with the young men in 
his state, and unless Senator Mason 
makes a remarkable flght he will be de- 
feated for the senatorial toga by the 
nresent comptroller of the currency.

By the Baby Melted Governor 
Durbin's Heart. 

Indianapolis. May 31.— Mrs. Harry 
Wright, carrying her child in her arms, 
a fine litle fellow, yet withal laughing 
and shaking his chubby fist at the 
chief executive, pleaded with Governor 
Durbin for the parole of her husband, 
who was committed to six months' Im- 
prisonment and was fined $500 and costs. 
The Imprisonment sentence had been 
served, but the fine remained to hold 
Wright for many weary months. 
While the wife stated her case Gover- 
nor Durbin kept his eye on the baby, 
which laughed and chuckled and made 
"goo-goo" eyes, until finally the old 

war horse turned to his private secre- 
tary, remarking. "Let's parole the, 
baby." The husband went free. 


Failure of Armor Plate For 
American Navy. 

Washington, May .31.— The first plate 
representing a lot of Krupp armor manu- 
factured for the American navy by the 
Bethlehem company was tested at the 
Indian Head proving grounds Wednesday 
and was a complete failure. It does not 
follow, though, that the group is worth- 
less. Government inspectors will select 
another plate from the group and send it 
to the proving grounds for trial. Should it 
fail the department will reject the group, 
although under the contract it may allow 
the company to retreat the plates. The 
plate tested Wednesday did not possess the 
recjuired toughness of back so neceSB^jr 
to Insure the best results. 


Punishment For a Young Mur^ 
derer In Indiana. 

Helena, Mont., May 31.— Life sentence in 
the state penitentiary is the punishment 
meeted out to James Wolff, an 18-year-old 
boy who shot and killed Sheriff Summers 
of Madison county last winter. The Jury 
that tried Wolff at Dillon. Beaver Head 
county, whither the case was transferred 
on a change of venue, reached a verdict 
in five hours. WolfTs youth saved him 
from receiving the pxtrcme penalty. 

The crime was most coldblooded and un» 
explainable as Sheriff Summers was at- 
tempting by a search warrant to search 
the cabin. In which Wolff lived near Vir- 
ginia City, for articles alleged to have been 
stolen by Wolff, when the latter deUb- 
erately killed the officer with a rifle. Feel- 
ing ran high and Wolff would have been 
lynched but for the pleadings of the dead 
officer's wife who urged the crowd of mad- 
dened men to let the law take its course.

straight through the stream, 
V'umping into the gasping, struggling 
Ju'lt;-- as he passed. 

■'Hey, thert*. what you doing?" cried 
the man with the Judge, who was get- 
ting his share of the sprinkling. 

"A-crosain* thi« crick in the for'l," 
drawled the mountaineer. 

"But. Lord," cried the other, " 
needn't drown people." 

"Hadn't a been thar. ye wouldn't a 
git splattered," returned the moun- 
taineer, unmiivrd. 

"But you could have ridden over a 
little," expostulated the other. 

"Hain't never seed no call to git out 
of a straight road yit," remarked the 
mountaineer, serenely. 

"1 suppose, of course, you kn^i-v thi.-? 
gentleman you have treated to a shower

"Knowed It all the tiint-," admitted 
the mountaineer. Indifferently. " 'Taint 
BO much, though I 'low judges is made

Into hi.5 voice. "Got six boys and ten 
tiephys. and three o' my gals is got hus- 
tiands— all voters— yes. That air is 
eome thing. Oee up, mewl." 

And he disappeared through the low 
irrowin.g laurel. 

Sometimes an old fellow will take it 
Into his head not to commit him«df 
■with regard t.> his intentions on election 
day. With such a one the candidate 
always sees a time. One afternoon u 
candidate for sheriff rcKle up to a cabin 
built high up on the side of a mountain. 
In answer to the "Hello," eight shock- 
headed children came rolling out of the 
only opening in the side of the house. 
" Where'.s your father?" asked the 
candidate. Several of the youngsters 
disappeared around the side of the 
house at the sound of the voice, but 
they gave no answer. 

"Your father— where is he?" again 
demanded the candidate. Still he got 
BO answer. 

"Well, then, where is your pap?" 
"Ah. I'fii'"— a lo.'k <if Intelligence 
•pread uver their faces. "He's smok- 

"Tell him to come out here, will you?" 
The remainder of the V)rood soem- 
peitd off. Presently a boy stuck his 
Iiead around the corner of the house. 

"Pap "lows he never meanders about 
when he's a-smokin'. He Jecit sets an" 

"Well, is he In the house or out of It? 
queried the candidate politely. 
"Out." was the laconic reply. 
' 'TVi you suppose he will oliject to our 

riding around where he i.< .s. tiin' an 1 a- 

The boy dart.-] .ait of .sight and soon 
came back again. 

"Pap lows he hain't holdin' jore 

"Pap" was sitting on a 1'>R taking long 
draws from a much-di.<icolored cob pipe. 
Ordinarily the niountainicr is the most 
host itable fellow in th. wtirid, but 
"pap" paid no attention to the candi- 

"Fine afternoon," remarked the can- 
didate for sheriff. 

"Seed a many a one as fine," returned 
"pap 'listles.sly. 

"The warm, earthy smell makes a fel- 
low feel like he wants to get hold of hia 
hoe." again tried the wnuld-be sheriff. 

" 'Pear.- iik. you hain't got hold o' 
vourn vit, ' rciufnt-d "pap." 

"Ytu have a pretty clearing here. I 
pre.sume you raise fine potatoe.s and 

"Pap" removed his jdpe, spat deliber- 
ately, and returned hi.- pipe to his 
" Tain't a pMul id.a t^> presoom." 
Seeing that the man di.sdalned to pass 
the phac^antries of the day the unlucky 
candidate plunged at on;e Into politics. 
"You are interested In the coming 
primary. 1 suppose?" he began blandly. 
"Hain't much more sense in supposin' they is in presoomin'." 

The candidate began to become ex- 

"Well, then, leaving 'supposin and 
'prtsoomin' out of the question, how do 
you stand in the coming election?" 

"Ilev sto.rd In water and snow, but 
hain't never tried slandin' In elections." 
snapped "i-ap." 

••Well," crie'<l the thoi.nichly exasper- 
ated candidate. "I re<kon you know I'm 
runntn" for eherift. aid I'm here to ask 
you to vote for me. ' 

"Pap " cocked his eye at him specu- 

"How do you know you ain't walkin' 
fer sheriff?" 

This was t<io much for the candidate, 
so he got on his hor--*e and rode away 
without another word. 

The next place the candidate stopped, 
hi.- reception was typical of the big- 
hearted mountaineer. The owner of the 
caliin met the candidate at the fence. 

" 'Ligt and come Inl 'Light and 
come in!" he cried delightedly. "Oettln' 
late. You must bunk right here tonight. 
No, don't say nnthin' 'bout comin' In

Wa.shlngton. May 31.— The admin- 
istration has decided that the action of 
the Cuban con.3tltutional convention in 
accepting the term.s of the Piatt amend- 
ment, with nuKllficatlons and interpre- 
tations of their own, was not "substan- 
tial" compliance with our terms within 
the meaning of the amendment, and 
Secretary Root wil convey this intelli- 
rence to the convention. The decisKj.i 
was reached at the cabinet meeting to- 
day. The meeting lasted over an hour 
and a half, ana had been preceded by 
an liCJUr'.s cimferencc bet.NCt^a the prc-d- 
dent and Senators Piatt (Conn.) and 
Lodge (Masvs.) The president disired 
to k-arn the views of Senator Piatt, as 
the author of the amendment, and also 
those of t^enutor Luilge. who i.-? one of 
the influential members of the commit- 
tee on foreign relations. At the cabinet 
meeting, t^ecretary Jtoot took the pn-l- 
fion that the interpretation of :lie Plait 
timendnieiit •-•.intained the coustitu'iou 
adopted by the convention and the 
whereases appended to it. went outside 
of .1 fair Interpretation of its m^aninj^ 
ar... WHS unac< eptable. 

In this view the cabinet concurred. 
When asked as to what would be the 
next step of the government after Uie 
Cuban convention had been notified of 

: the rejection of its action, one of the 
members of the cabinet said that the 

, government could do nothing further 
until the convention again acted, that 
as long as the conditions of the Piatt 
amendment were on the statute books 
compliiince with them must precede our 
relinquishment of control over the 
island. The cabinet also dlscu-ss^d the 
decisions of the sur'reme court In the 
insular cases especially their bearing 
upon the forthcoming decision of the 
court in the Philippine cases. It was 
the general opinion that in some j-hases 
the Dellma decision might be held en- 
tirely inapplicable. No definite conclu- 
sion, however, wa.s reached at today's

Englishman Would Set Aside 
the Carnegie Purchase. 

London. May 31.— A dispatch from 
Edinburgh says action has been insti- 
tuted by Sir Charles Sutherland to set 
aside the purchase of Skibo casle by 
Andrew Carnegie. The ground for the 
objection has not yet developed. Sklbo 
castle was taken over by Mr. Carnegie 
a couple of years ago and he has resided 
there since then on the occasion of each 
visit to this side of the Atlantic. 

Though the name of the plaintiff is 
given as Sir Charles Sutherland, no such 
title is discoverable. 

Old Potatoes Took a

(iistance— by the flight that his price has 
taken since he came on the market. With- 
in a day or two old potatoes have nearly 
doubled In price, nnil If anytlUnx keeps 
up the pace a short time longer the older 
generation of potatoes will be nc-arly as

Is saying a good deal, even though the 
new potatoes have gone off In price since 
they tlrst came on the market, for some 
time old potatoes have been quoted on 
Michigan street nt 45 to 48 cents, but to- 
day the only way to get them now is to 
put up i'> to 75 cents a bushel, and of 
coume that means that If tne dealers 
have ;c pay that much the consumer vaxtat 
pay more In proportion. New potatoes 
are holding steady, and have had no de- 
crease In price in a week.

"Everybody. I reckon," said in ami- 
able man in a STU'wester and a .suit if 
oilskins; "everybody, I reckoi;, has 
sometime or other drawn cuts foi some- 
thing; children draw cuts, broom^nllnts 
or straws, the longest gets It, and .so on: 
and that way Is old and familiar to 
everybody; but fishermen have ways 
that are a little different," says the New 
York Sun. 

"Pay, for instance, half a dozen men 
went on a flsning venture together. If 
they made a good catch, one that it 
would pay to take to market, they would 
market it and divide the money; but If 
they didn't get enough to pa.v for doing 
that, then they would divide tCie fish, 
and the firshermen would take them 
among themselves forThelr own use, or 
to sell at home or to give away to their 

"Of course, the fish might be of differ- 
ent kinds and sj of different values: 
and they might bo of different weights. 
So they divide the fishes, if there were 
six men, Into six lots, as evenly and 
fairly as they can. But there may b? a 
choice among them still, and so they all 
draw cuts for them, and each takes the 
pile assigned to him by the cut he drew. 
The piles are numbered, one to six in- 
clusive, and six chips or sticks, num- 
bered one to six inclusive, are held by 
somebody, and the fis£iermen draw, and 
each takes the pile with the number of 
his cut. But that's much like the old 
long and short broomspllnts. The more 
characteristic way, after the fish havo 
been divided, is this: 

"Six sticks are driven in the beach and 
against each i? drawn a uuinber in the 
sand. Then one of the fisherm'-n <:; 
blindfolded; and .inother. wllCi his eyes 
clear, is stationed back of the row of 
sticks. The blindfolded man is then led 
along the line, .nfter some little pre- 
liminary walk-about, so that he won't 
know exactly where he is. and halted in 
front of one of the sticks, its number un- 
known to tilm. Then says the man be- 
hind the row: 

" 'Whose pile is this?' 

"And the blindfolded man says: 

" 'Harry Smiths." 

"Mavbe they had halted the blind- 
folded" man in front of stick No. 5. and 
so Harry Smith takes the pile of fish 
numbered 5. , . .w 

"And so they go along, halting the 
blindfolded man In front of one after an- 
other of the sticks, but m-t taking them 
in order, and bringing I im up in front 
in such a way that he doesn't know tCie 
number. And so he is brought up the 
second time and so on until all the piles 
have been awarded. 

"Of course there couldn't be a falr-r-r 
way of divldiilg the fis.^ than this; but 
there is a way of getting around It. just 
as there is of getting around any way. 
if men are so disposed. If the two men 
picked out to do the choosing can get 
together, and if they are that way In- 
clined, they can beat the rest. They 
can agree on a signal that indicates the 
best and the second best piles and take 
them for themselves. A shuffle of the 
foot on the sand by the man behind the 
sticks might mean: Take this one for 
me.' And a little cough might mean: 
•Take this one for yourself.' 

"But you don't often see anything of 
that sort done," the amiable man In the 
sou'wester and oilskins concluded; "Tir 
the psherman is pretty likely to be a 
man that plays fair."

Illusions of the Rail That 

Try Nerves on 


The Phantom Flagman 

and the Warning That 

Came True. 

I wonder what was the first, instantane- 
ous sensation of that Canadian engineer 
who ran down Jumbo in the fog. Prob- 
ably no engineer ever had a stranger 
shock; but shocks, strange and otherwise, 
are the portion of every man who stands 
iit a loionr.otlve throttle, says the New 
York Sun. He must get used to them and 
stand them as best he can — or find some 
occupation with less nervous strain lo it. 
Most of them in the business :;?t hard- 
ened to the unexpected, which Is always 
happening on the rails. 

One of the worst starts I ever had was 
due lo a large lazy pig who had got on my 
mind. Nithlng will slide a train more 
easily and destructively from the 'ails 
than live jiork. This particular ipecim<'n 
hud a lu.bli of burrowing along-jide the 
track, and it was a fair presumption that 
sooner or later he would llnd someihiriK to 
interest him between the rails, and some- 
body would go down the bajik. 

1 "was ccniing down a hill one day at 
hlsh .>-pted, and craning my neck for a 
comfoi ling sight of piggy In his accus- 
tomed phice, when, as I popped aroimd 
the curvt, a bright red ilag as.saul'.'d my 
anxious gaze- The connection between 
that flag and the pig was c:dy a bit of 
mental aberration on my part, but It was 
verv vivid 

I shut off and grabbed the whistle cord, 
but befor ' I could even scceech for brakes 
I saw that the Hag was only a red llau.nel 
shirt, which the good woman of the siian- 
ty to which the pig belonged liad hung on 
an imj. revised clothesline between Ihe 
tclegra^)!! pc les. That may not sound like 
much ut a scare, but it represents a type 
that turns the railroad man's hair to a 
delicate ash color. 

Rallr.>ad men have supplemented the 
rulos with additions of their own, for the 
sake of ccnvenience, and to exiwoite the 
work. When n man is sent out to Hag he 
gets inslructloiiH. Perhaps he Is told to let 
all regular trains pass, but to hoLi every- 
thing else; then he understands that his 
conduct >r will have his train in the siding 
wnen those trains arrive. 

\ freight train had occa.<«lon to or >ss 
to the other track, but there wasn't time 
to cross ahead of the limited. A man 
was sent ahead with onlers to let the lim- 
ited liv and hold everything elae until 
he sh luld be called in. I was fireman 
on the limited that night, and the place 
I write of was in tho middle of a twenty- 
mile run, where the engineer made a prac- 
tice of catchli „ up any little time pre- 
viouslv lost. 

I heard a sudden exclamation as George, 
mv ongineer, shut off and snapped on the 
air. I s-te{ ped to the gangway and caugnt 
a glimpse of a fellow waving a rel light 
frantlcallv as we flew by. In another 
instant we rounded the curve, and there 
was a headlight right in our face and 

Oeorge "horsed "er over," and I thought 
he would surelv pull the sand lever out 
by the roots, but in spite of all, he;ul- 
llght came up on us like a comet. Of 
ctuirse. we thought the other fellow was 
crossed over on "ur track, or he wouldn t 
have flagged us: It didn't make any differ- 
ence that he had no right to be there; 
there he was. George yelled for me to 
"Kit off." but a single glance at the 
ground satisfied me with my chances 
Where I was. 

A moment later we rolled pa.^t the en- 
cine aiid half the train— which was i-n Its 
own track. The freight conductor 
climbe<l up on our enKine and asked 
Oeorge if that blanked fool had flagged 
him. George sputtered and stammered 
with nervousness before he found his 
tongue, but when hp did that conductor 
heard something that was well worth list- 
ening to. Suih a salvo of vernal pyro- 
technics—George expressing himself about 
the conductor, and he about the flagman 
—one hears but once in a lifetime. 

A newlv located watchman's shanty— 
lovjklng exactiv like the end of a box car 
—set mv scalp to tingling one night. 
There had never been anytnlng there but 
the river before, and when the headlight 
glared on that very substantial structure 
I was sure mv call had arrived. 

Another time a tool box In a tunnel, 
partlv covered over with clothes and a 
coll of rope, started me for the step, tm- 
der the Imipresslon that It wa« a rock fall- 
en from the roof. But these are mere 
harmless scares which help to keep one 
awake. The engine gets by them before 
vou get off, and you are back in your se^it 
again breathing anathema. maranatha 
against the thoughtless Idiot who was the 
cause of it all. Thcoi there are the otner 

I was poking up a long hill one night 
when a red light suddenly showed up, 
followed at once by another. Indicating 
that the caboose of the preceding train 
was just aheaxi— and I was coming up to 
It with astcnishlng rapidity. 1 yelled to 
mv fireman to .lump, and we had uarely 
landed In the ditch when six cars and t.he 
caboose of the train ahead climbed all 
over our engine. The irain had broken in 
two and this was the rear section that 
had trutidled down hill on top of us. 

Freouentlv I have been asked if railroad 
men are superstitious. I think not, though 
thev might be pardoned if the>- were. 

One night, after the meeting, Fred Jones 
asked, with fairly well a.«sumed indiffer- 
ence If "anv o' vou fellers" had seen a 
hvsterious flagman at night near the old 
stone house, this side of Ollendorf s Fill. 
Two or three of the men looked around, 
quick anl sharp, as though the question 
remin led them of something, but nobody 
adnUtted he had. 

"Darn funnv. " said Fred, uufflng at his 

cigar like a "mog" on a grade, "I ve seen 

Im twice, 'n danged If I c'n make it 

Iri response to careful pumping. Jones 
told me that on two occasions, on the 
niRht trip, a fellow had sprung out from 
behind thC ruins of the old stone house 
and flagged him— not with a lamp, al- 
though It was nighttime, but with a flag. 
He stopped both tlnves. but no man was 
to be found, nor was there any occasion 
for flagging. ^, , ^ 

On the second occasion his conductor 
hinted with railroad frankness that Jones 
was lopv, so Jones said he would disre- 
gard the" fellow's signal If he ever saw 
him again. As to details, he remembered 
only that both niphts were brilliantly 
moonlit and that a good breeze was blow- 

About two months later, along in the 
fall, after a heavy rain. Jones ran Into a 
bad rock-slide a quarter of a mile t)eyond 
the old stone house- His fireman was 
killed bur he escaped with a sprained 
ankle. He came hobbling up to me a day 
or two later, as I was oiling round and 

"Wal, T done It." 

"Done what?" 

"Run by that stone house flagman i 
was tellln' ye about; wonder If they II 
think I'm dopy now?" ^ ^ 

He went on to tell me that the same 
fellow flagged him the night of the acci- 
dent; but. with his good naine in mind, 
he dropped her down a notch, breathed 
defiance at the spook throu.i?n his teeth, 
and went through the cut tail on end only 
to pile up on the slide a moment later. 

One nlRhf, a long time after I was 
killing time on a clearance. The moon 
was about full, pretty well down in thd 
west, and there was a stiff breeze from 
the same quarter. I remembered Jones 
flagman, and decided he would never have 
a better chance to get cauKht. I shut oft 
and let her roll on aproachlng the stone 

Waving shadows on the track, cast by 
trees t-nd bushes on the bank above, sug- 
gested a possible solution of the mystery. 
I kept my eves fastened religiously on 
the spot Jones had described, and present- 
ly saw there was something there. Grad- 
uallv the thing took form, until, when 
wltliln a train length, I could have sworn 
that a man was In front of me waving a

no attention. Then I crawled out on the 
run board and looked at the moon, which 
was just visible above the bank at my 
right. ' As the moon, myself and the mim 
came into line, he became blurred and in- 
distinct, and 1 observed that a small pine 
tree on the bank was- also coming into 
line with us. When the line was com- 
I.Iete the flagman spread out and lost 

Next I saw Jones I told htm about 
It, and he exclaimc-d: 

"•Well. I'll be darned!" 

On his next day oft Jones dead-headed 
to the station near the stone house and 
tranipe<l four miles with an axe. The 
spook never bothered him nor 
any one else thereafter. 



A ludicrous case of misplaced confidence 
in the evidence of his own eyes was that 
of Pete Schufeldt, a crabbed, contrary, 
Lehigh Vallev Dutchman. Pete had en- 
joyed a ten davs" involuntary vacation 
through being "outlined ' by his conduc- 
tor and crew in regard to an open switch, 
and he hungered and thirsted for revenge. 

Coming east shortly afterward m a 
dense fog and carr.ving white flags they 
crossed over at a water-plug and let 
some cars on a siding. They hacked on 
to the train again, and while the fireman 
took water, Pete got down to oil. He 
found a warm wedge on the front driving 
box on his side, and pulled It down a bit. 
While he was under her, the conductor 
passed, and told him to call the Hag when 
he was ready 

Pete got his tallow pot. gave the wedge 
a good dose of cylinder oil, put on the pot 
on the run board, flnlshing oiling and 
climbed Into the cab. He was In the very 
act of reaching for the whistle cord to 
call the flag when he saw what looked 
like the target of an open switch right 
ahead of the engine. It was really the 
staff of tl:e white flag, helped out by the 
tallow pot, which he had forgotten and 
left on the run board. But the heavy fog 
aided and abetted bv the simmer of the 
safety valve, and escaping steam from the 
cylinder cocks, 'obscured his vision and 
distorted his perspective. 

Here was a chance to get square with 
that coidi'ctor. A local was following 
them prettv close, and a few minutes' de- 
lay would ""lav her out' and necessitate 
an expl'inatiori from the conductor as to 
how he came to leave that switch open. 
Pete sat down comfortably In his cab and 
awaited developments. 

When the conductor came up fviming 
Pete told him with fine sarcasm that If 
he was In a hurrv he had better close that 
gate In front of the engine. During the 
interchange of courtesies which followed 
this shot the fireman noted the absence 
of the tallow pot and aske<l Pete If he had 
had it. The conductor referred In a scorn- 
ful manner to Pete's cranial density, and 
told him he couldn't see the switch from 
there anyhow. 

"Ish dot so?" roared Pete, foaming with 
righteous indignation. "Better vou get 
your eves fixed. Vat you call dat, hey?" 
and he" ix inted triumphantly ahead, just 
as the lirfman reached u»j and llfte«l the 
tallovv pot down from the run-board. 

Of fourse. the supposed open switch 
target disappeared and Pete has been 
trying to explain ever since. 

One Has Been Burning For 

Forty Years. 

The snncuncement from Tamaqua. Pa., 
that the fire In the mammoth vein, started 
In the winter of 1860-61 In a colliery with- 
in the limits of tne town, has been at last 
cut off in one direction and has ourned 
down to the water level on the other, 
where the vein strikes the Schuylkill, 
brings to mind how great has been the 
destruction bv underground fires of the 
unmlned wealth of coal In the anthracite 
region of Pennsylvania, sa>-B the New 
York Sun. Considering the nawrow hmJts 
of territory in w'hich the anthracite veins 
He the loss of irreplaceable natural treas- 
ure here has been as great, conaparatlve- 
Iv as that wrought by fire In the forests 
of this country. The great 14-foot vein 
In which this I'amaqua fire has 'or forty 
vears swept on a steady path of ruin is 
that 5ti which the finest grade of anthra- 
cite OS always found. For a space of 
more than a mile In length every atom 
of that coal has been reduced to ashes in 

There have unfortunately been many 
other similar flres. Three «' .^he most 
urinous besides this have been the famous 
Summit Hill burning mine on the moun- 
tain between Mauch Chunk and Tama- 
qua, the Empire mine fire at Wllkes- 
Barre, the Butler mine fire at PIttston. 
All three flres were in colleriee where the 
vein lay high on the valleys below, thus 
making them the more difficult to combat. 
Both the E^mplre and the Butler mine 
communicated so closely with other un- 
derground workings that It was an Im- 
perative necessity to find a method to 
cut th-^m off. as it eventually became com- 
pulBorv In regard to the Tamaqua Are, 
now reported under control.

uesolailon ,,, . ,. 

Ju ]!S73 th.; great Empire colliery of tn«. 
L^aifcMi Coal company, with Its opening 
high on tne mouiiiaiu rising on tue eoat 
airectly above Wiikes-Barre, was discov- 
ereu to be on fire, ine names were lougiit 
lor many weeKs by omctra and men wno 
bravely iniperiUeU their lives in v^floris to 
subdue tnem. At last, these enueavora ail 
proving vain, the idea camt; to a mine 
looemau in the company's employ to force 
hteum into tne worKings atter closing tne 
mine operdngs. Happuy, the vein lay so 
deep tnat tiiere exiatea no daaiger ol 
breakings-ln of the surrace. 

A long row of Immense boilers was 
planted on the mountain side, and steam 
was continuously forced into and througli 
all the workings to where a great wall of 
rock and earth had been built to chut off 
ihe Empire troin the adjoining mine. 
Nine months later investigation shuwe^ 
that tne names had finally been smoth- 

Early In the winter of 1S7S-&3 a tramp, 
who h'ad taken refuge In the mouth of an 
abandoned mine slope belonging to the 
Butler Coal company, htgb up o;i tne 
eastern mountain range Immediately 
above Piltston, left a fire burning that 
communicated to all the inside woodwork 
ot the slope, and thence to the pillars ot 
coal that are always leti standing at cer- 
tain Intervals to support the mine roof. 
Owing to the fact thai no part ot tne mine 
was then being worked the fire had 
reached a point where it was utterly be- 
yond control before It was discovered. 

It had followed all the windings ot the 
vein swept around and beyond the coal 
Dinars Into the mine chambers on elt.ner 
side of the great gallery, and was rapialy 
nearlng the place where the abandoned 
workings opened Into the mine next be- 
low. Xhence unless checked It wou d 
have found open channels to communicate 
with other collieries down the entira 
length of the valley. 

T^e vein lay very near the mountala 
surface. By the time the fire was i'»scoy- 
ered the earth was already beginning to 
cave In at many places, and new Points of 
exuosure of the fire to the open air wera 
constantly appearing. "Tnere was tnere- 
fore no possibility of using steam as an 
extinguisher as was done at the Empire 
mine. The more usual method ot Hooding 
the mine was likewise Impossible It c )tiia 
not be done without having the water 
pour down upon the town lying directly, 
below In the valley. „ ^ ^ „ „,,hi 

In this perplexity a Mr. Conrad a civil 
engineer then living in West ^ittstwi. 
across the Susquehanna, laid before tne 
Butler company's officers a plan whicn 
adopted by them and carried out under hla 
=uuervision, proved successful In confin- 
Ine the fire to the mine on the mountain 
L?de. Just above the line where began the 
newer workings, down the mountalii side 
men were sot at work by day aiid night 
in "-hour relays to dig a deep ditch cut- 
tliiK through the coal vedn to oed rock ly- 
ing underneatn-a ditch laop feet iwig in- 
tended to cut off the fire line stretchlnjf 
from north to south. ».„„ ^n 

Some sixteen feet wide at the bottom on 
its bed of rock the ditch sloped outward 
on both sides. It was lined with idabs of 
stone on the side next the appr.^arbi.ig 
Hre The work had to be prosecti ted with 
unresisting, almost feverish, haste but it 
^^as done before the fire had eaten Its 
way Into the nearest range of chambers. 

Then bv means of pumps and engines a 
small steady flow of water was turned in- 
?™the ditch at the upper end aiid carrl^l 
off at the lower end to a small patufal 
stream The fire was thus shut in tha 
IbanZned workings, but It took more 
than five years after that to burn Itself 
out When it had done so the w^iole of 
Butler mine mountain slope bore the sem-. 
blance of an extinct volcano crater--a 
stranle contrast to what it was when the 
fire was first discovered. 

At that time, In the earlier months ot 
1879. the grass and shrubs were forc^ 
Into tropical richness by the heat below. 
Later, when th^ soil began to cave *» 
jrreat mas^ses all vegetation was de- 
itroyed. From the great masses of burn- 
ing coal below, gorgeous with every twit 
of flame that burning anthracite ca,a 
wear every once in a while, some spire 
of flame w-ould leap up and selie soina 
still standing tree near the brink or tne 
latest cave-In. That no death stands rec- 
orded of any of the many adventurous 
sightseers was in Itself a marvel.

About a woek ago the sale of 30,000,000 
feet of slandinK pine on the north shore, 
in Lake county, to the Weyerhaeuser 
Inttrests, was made public, but since 
that time it has been learned that th-jre 
was more limber In the deal and the 
Weyerhaeuaers were not the main peo- 
ple in the deal. Subsequent light on 
the transaction indicates that it was 
a shrewd move on the part of Thomas 
Bat-Qon. of Ashland, Wis., who through 
this and othor deals al»out the aume 
time has j;ot control of 115,000.000 feet 
of standing pine in Lake county and is 
placed in a position where he can prac- 
tically dictate the price of his limber 
to the other lumber companies thai 
have tinilicr mixed In with Mr. IJar- 
don's. and that have, or will have, log- 
ging railways Into the district. 

Less than two years ago Kenneth 
McDonabl, of this city, bought for Wil- 
son Pleas and Thomas Bardon a tract 
of standing pine In Lake county that 
contained 50.000.000 feet of pine. Ajout 
the same time Mr. McEtonald bought 
for Patrick CulHgan. of Alpena. Mich., 
another piece of pine in the same dls- 
tri<*t that was estimated at a little over 
31.000.000 feet. Other luml>er ctKiipanies 
having an eye on the north shore lim- 
U-r bought also so that tho ownership 
of the timlier in all the purchases was

Apia. Samoa. May 8. via San Francisco, 
May 31. — (Correspondence of the Asso- 
ciated Press.)— Ttip German government 
has made rapid progress with the roads 
commenced by the late government. But 
it has not yet been done altogether with 
German money, for that government, 
upon the partition of the islands, secured

It l.>^ said that Mr. Bardon. after 1 jok- 
ing over the situation, figured that the 
lumber companio.^ having railroads run- 
ning into the timber would, if they 
reached out. pra tically have control of timber, and his timber would not n-; 
marketable for a number of years, as 
they would first cut off all th.^lr hold- 
ings. Figuring It out on this basis, he 
Kt I out to t'et control of an amount of 
timber large enough to make him one 
or the controlling factors In the timber 
j!upply of tlie district, and to thi.s end 
he as.HOciatod with himself the Weyer- 
haeusers. In the deals that have re- 
cently been ciostd. Mr. Bardon and the 
We>erhaouser» have not only secured 
Mr. Culligan's timber, but they have 
boug>ht l.i.OOO.OOO feet belonging to Hun- 
ter & Ste-kltauer. and have lM>ught out 
Mr. Pleas' interest in the 50,000.000 feet 
of pine In a district now reaehed by the 
Split koek Lumber company's road, and 
which will be tributary to the logging 
railway Mit.hell & McCiure aie

The rallrt which the Mitchell & Mc- 
Clure company will put in to their tim- 
ber are tho<?e used on their logging 
road last winter, and which were taken 
up this spring on the completion of tho 
operations in the vicinity of Hie? Lake. 
It is claimed that the rulllgm tim- 
li r which was estimat.-<i at 31.OW.000 
ft et, will run nearer 3.'>.0<>0.000 feet, uc- 
cordlng to the estimate <jf an Ashland 
timl>:>r man. and the Bardon & Pleas 
timber is nearer 57.000.000 feet than 50.- 
0<X),000. Mr. Bardon controls a l»rge 
shiire of tho north '.'hnre timber trilm- 
tary to the roads of the othor lumber 
companies, and instead of being f!\rze;t 
out by them, can easily put his pri e to 
$:> a thousand. The timber coat Mr. 
Bardon and his asocialos $42!). 000. and 
local timbermen .say that it is the b'>.^t 
deal of the kind that h-is l>een put 
through in yearc^ In Northern Minne- 
sota. The timber was bought years 
ago at $1..'<> a thousand, and the parlies 
closing out to Mr. Bardon have made a 
good thing. Mr. Culligan has not had 
his timber more than a >e;ir. and s.ime 
of it about six months, and will r!.»an 
up over $."0,000. whil<^ Mr. will

No. 17 East Superior St. 

New York. May 31.— "The supreme 
court decision In' the Porto Rico casos 
means an attempt will be made by the 
Republican i«rty to elect McKlnley for 
a third term. It vieans an attempt at 
concrete Imperiallam within the iiext 
four years." 

This was the"seft(Tment utttered last 
night by Former, Senator Charles A. 
Towne of Minnesota, at the Fifth Ave- 
nue hotel, where he Is staying. 

"I know," hu said, "that the proposi- 
tion to run McKlnley for a third t'>:-ni ha.s 
lu'en .seriously considered by Republican 
polltloiaus They deceived the people and 
won on the last election upon tho plea of 
'un.^^ttlinl Cf mpllcations." and this chaotic 
decision the supreme court gives further 
ground for carrying the same argument. 
It was used in the time of Augustus, and 
he became emperor of Rome, it was use<i 
in the time of Napoleon, and he became 

emperor of France. 

"The efforts of the Republican party 
have been to make the presidency a semi- 
monarchy, and I believe this decision, if 
It turns out favorably to the administra- 
tion, will he:p make it an absolute mon- 

"For myself, I hollove we shall all come 
back soon to the old-fashioned idea of 
Americanism. I do not think we men of 
the United States will ever subscribe to 
the idea that the constitution framed by 
our grandfathers can and cannot, does 
and does not. follow the flag, is and is not 

In regard to his presence In the city Mr. 
Towne said : 

"I expect to live in New York. I am 
out of politics for tho present. I am not 
going to afflllate with either Tammany or 
anti-Tammany factions. All I can say is 
there will be one more Democratic vote in 
New York."

to the present titne only 4S0 licenses have 
been taken out. The canine population 
of Duluth Is estimated at ISOO. 

The license fee or a male dog Is $1

4.S0 licenses taken out this spring. 475 
are males and about 470 are named 

The police department has men out 
now enforcing the dog license ordinance. 
The officers give ample warning to the 
owners to take out the license, and if this 
warning Is not he^-ded. warrants are 
sworn out against the owners. Last year 
one dog owner decided to fight the police 
department on the license question, and 
it cost him 110 In addition to the regular

The revenue derived from licensing 
dogs is divided between the city and the 
Police Relief association. The city gives 
the policemen 50 per cent of all money 
collected fti this way in excess of |800. 

Army Surgeons Make a 

Strong Plea For Its 


St. Paul. May 31.— By a unanimous 
Vote, the Association of Military Sur- 
geons in session here today, pa-ssed a 
esolulion in favor of the repeal of the 
anti-canteen law. The subject wa.s 
introduced with the resolution in a 
paper by Lieut. Louis L. Seaman, late 
of the First United States volunteer en- 

His jiaper dealt with the army can- 
teen and the army ration. It provoked 
considerabl talk, but every speaker 
agreed with the author. A supple- 
mentary resolution by Col. Reed. of 
Wyoming, constituted every delegate a 
committee to see the congressmen from 
his own state and provide for a com- 
! mittee of three to labor with congress. 
This last committee is to act with the 
legislation committee of the American 
Medical as«ociation. 

The reading was frequently interrtjpfed 
by applause and followed r.y a general dis- 
cussion. Following Is the resohition: 

Whereas. The Assf>ciation of Military 
Surpeons of the I'nlted States, now in ses- 
sieon at St. Paul, recoRniies that the abo- 
lition of the army post exchange or can- 
teen has resulted, and must inevitably re- 
sult. In an Increase of intom!>era!»ce. In- 
sulwtrdlnetlon. discontent, desertion and 
disease in the army: therefore, be It 

Resolved. That this tiolv deplores the 
actkm of congress in abolishing the said 
post oxchanpo or canteen, and In the inter- 
ests of s.inItatlon. morality and discipline, 
recommends Its re-establlshment at the 
earliest jwsalhlo date.

The tune was "See the Conquering 
Hero Comes." and the whistler, hidden 
.somewhere behind a pile of dry goods 
boxes, was rendering the music with 
spirit and precision, says the New York 
Sun. „ ,, ., 

'That boy is a good whistler, said the 

"Boy'.'" said the manager of the de- 
partment. "That is not a boy. It is a 
woman. She is our assistant bookkeeper, 
and she certainly is one of the best 
whistlers for an amateur I ever heard. 
She must be unusually busy now or she 
wouldn't be rattling off that tune ai 
such a lively rate. I've noticed that the 
deeper her interest in her work the bet- 
ter she whistles. The first time I heard 
her whistle back in the office I was in- 
expressibly shocked. 

" 'Why. my dear Miss MoUin," L said, 
'really this Is most extraordinary.' 

" 'Yes.' said she, 'I suppose it is, hut 
I've got to do It when I get down to real 
hard work. If you expect me to get 
through with all these accounts today, 
you've just got to let me whistle.' 

"So she whistled, and she's kept on 
whistling, whenever we have an un- 
usual rush of business. I don't know 
that it looks any worse to see a woman 
whistnng when going about her work 
than when walking along the street. 

The customer gasped. "Do women 
whistle on the street?" was the anxious 
question. „,. 

"Do they?" said the manager. "If you 
had kept your eyes and ears open that 
que-stion would be entirely superfluou*. 
Why the number of whistling women 
seen here Is one of the first things that 
strike a visiting foreigner as peculiar. 
Haven't you heard them? Haven't you 
seen them? American men long ago 
earned for us the name of a whistling 
nation, and now the women are doing 
their best to keep up the reputation. 

"If you will watch them hurrying 
along the streets you will find that fully 
50 per cent have their lips puckered In- 
to whistling shape. Sometimes this pre- 
paratory pucker really amounts to 
something and they emit shrill, un-

musical noises, while again they ars 
content with the dumb semblance of a 
whistle. in most cases these women, 
like my bookkeeper, are unconscious of 
their astonishing facial contortion, and 
merely whistle or strike the whistling 
expre.ssion as a relief to their high ner- 
vous tension. 

"Before I became superintendent of 
this department 1 was on the road for 
.several years and I noticed that the 
women of other cities are also given 
to whistling. You just ought to hear 
them out in Chicago. There is no 
half-hearted about the 
whistling out there. The notes ring out 
loud and buoyant. The old adage 
about whistling girls and crowing hens 
has no terrors for Chicago women, and 
they don't care a rap who hears them. 

"In Philadelphia they are more sub- 
dued, but they whi.stle just thj same. 
But if you want to hear good whistling 
from the feminine portion of the popu- 
lation—soft, sweet, melodious whistling 
—just go to Richmond. That town la 
noted for many things, but if I was 
asked to give my opinion as to Its chief 
title to fame. I should say it is the 
women's proficiency in whistling. 

"But. taken all In all. New York 
beats the world on whistling. You w-iU 
find more cases of the whistling face 
here than anywhere else. This phase 
of the tiahit is to be deplored, for the 
tell-tale lines In the face of a confirmed 
whistler are not pretty. The upper lip 
is lengthened and furrowed with fine 
lines, and the cornets of the mouth be- 
come wrinkled. These facial charac- 
teristics are more pronounced when the 
whistler performs his litlot turn from 
nervousness instead of i)leasure. conse- 
quentlv they are much In evidence, for 
It certainly Is nervousness that makes 
most people, especially women, whistle 
their way through life."

The citizens who had occasion to go

that a majority of the proj-erty owners

waited on the l.iard of public works, nt

They wish the sprinkling t'l exti-nd

Memorial Day Observed 

In a Most Fitting 


staples. Minn.. May 31.— (Svieclal to 
The Herald.)— Memorial da> was ob- 
served here in a most fitting manner. 
The day o|iened auspiciously, the wea- 
ther being delightful; in fact all that 
could be desired for such a day. The 
people were early astir and in a ahort 
time the streets were filled with people 
all eager to parlicpate in the events. 
Elaborate preparations had been made 
by the committee in charge and not a 
hitch marred the carrying out ol" the 
Well arranged program. 

The procession was furmed on Fourth 
strtet at !>:30 a. m. and was In charge 
of J. M. <;lunt. who was marshal of the 
day. It was the finest spectacle yet 
witnessed in this place. The proces- 
sion was headed by Miller's cornet band 
and In the ranks were veterans of '61 
and 'H8 marching side by side, proud of 
the fact that they had fought and bled 
lor their country's honor. A fife and 
drum, in the hands of veterans w ho had 
seen service In the civil war, furnished 
martial inspiration that was especially 
enjoyable to the old time warriors. The 
.school children followed In floats which 
had been most artistically arranged. 
two of which represented the states of 
th.- T'lii. ,n. Prominent citizens and 
\ to the town followed in cur- 

r.*._ . . The line of march was taken 
to the cemetery, where the graves of 
the departed soldiers were literally 
buried in flowers In memory of their 
gallant deeds. 

All places of business were closed 
and the day was given over to the 
honoring of the dead. The afternoon 
exercises were held In Masonic hall and 
included music by the church gocletles 

and an Interesting address by Rev. W, 
W. John.«on, of Crokston. 

Fully 500 people from Staples attended 
the ball game at Verndale between the 
Hewitts and the Verndales. which re- 
sulted In a victory for the Hewitts by a 
score of 5 to 4. 

Staples is enjoying an era of prosper- 
ity, the greatest in the history of the 
town. Many new buildings are In con- 
templation, and the Northern Pacifls 
will spend a large amount of money In 
improvements in the fall. 

The "Why Not" club enjoyed an im- 
promptu dancing party at the hotel, 
which was participated In by forty 
couples, who had a mist delightful time.

Shocking Condition of Four- 
Year-Old Child. 

Chicago. May 31.— Charges of cruelty 
were mad*? against Merecka Blazozyk. 313 
North Scn«amon street, in the West Chi- 
cago nvei'ue police court by Juvenile Of- 
ficer John Ph:ilen. The evidence of cruel- 
ty was sf:.rtling and shycklng. said Jus- 
tice Peversoii. as he held the woman to 
the criiTiiiial court in heavy bonds. 'ITie 
most clf.iiit.giiig evidence against the de- 
fendint was thf condition of her child, a 
girl 4 years old. A lat-o'-nine-talls was 
submltud as (.•\ldence to the court and

Washington. May 31.— "We must have 
a Nicaragua canal," said Senator Cul- 
lom. "The time has come when some- 
thing must be done. Our people are 
universally in favor of the construction 
of a canal, and they will have it. Noth- 
ing will thwart them In their wishes in 
this direction, at least for any great 
period of time. I believe congress l3 
strongly Inclined to pass a bill at its 
next session authorizing the digging of a 

"Notwithstanding popular opinion, I 
do not believe the rallroais will stand in 
the way of the canal. The transcontin- 
ental railroad lines naturally do not 
want the canal constructed, as they now 
carry a tremendous amount of freight 
across the continent. A canal would 
shorten the distance by water to our 
Pacific ports, doing away with the ex- 
pensive and perilous voyage around 
Cape Horn. With a shorter water route, 
much of the freight hauled across the 
continent would go by water, but even 
with the prospects of small Inroads being 
made on their carrying trade I do not 
believe the railroads would strongly op- 
pose canal legislation. 

"One or two things are necessary, 
however, before congress can authorize 
the construction of a canal. We must 
either make a new treaty with Great 
Britain or get rid of the Clayton-Bulwer 
treaty, which stands in iho way of pro- 
gress. We are now iconf#onted with that 
treat.v, and nothing 'in bo done until 
It is abrogated either by agreement or 
by legislative enactment." 

"I am In favor of abrogating the Clay- 
ton-Bulwer treaty by agreement," con- 
tinued the senator, "as this Is the only 
way In which it can be done properly. It 
must be remembered that a treaty is a 
solemn agreement between two nations, 
and merely because one party to it be- 
comes dissatisfied with its provisions it 
has no right to break the agreement 
abruptly. . . 

"To abrogate the treaty by legislative 
enactment is a forcible and Improper 
manner of escaping the carrying out of 
an agreement which was entered into In 
good faith. The latter course tnay be a 
cause for war. 

"The consequences that follow an arbi- 
trary act of this kind must be borne by 
the nation which is responsible for the 
action. When a treaty Is abrogated in 
this way the nation which suflTers may 
determine what the ptnalty may be. It 
may break off diplomatic relations, de- 
clare war. or resort to other measures it 
chooses to adoDt. 

"1 believe Great Britain will agree to 
the abrogation of the treaty without 
asking anything unreasonable in re- 
turn. The treaty is antiquated and 
conditions have changed wonderfully 
since it was negotiated. Great Britain 
has no special reason for holding on to 
the old treaty unless It hopes to gain 
control of .some of the South American 
countries. We would not permit it to 
do that as such action would be a clear 
violation of the Monroe doctrine, and 
our people would not allow that for an 

"Our commerce demands the con- 
struction of a canal. We propose to 
spend cur money in the enterprise, .ind 
I do not believe Great Grltain will stand 
In our way. Therefore, it is only rea- 
sonable to suppose the British govern- 
ment will agree to a treaty which will 
be acceptable." 

"If the Clayton-Bulwer treaty cannot 
be abrogated In an orderly and proper 
wav." the senator went on, "it then 
will be time enough to consider other 
methods. I am strong in the belief, 
owever, that the English nation will 
yield gracefullv. The control of the 
canal must lie with the United States. 
After we spend our money for this vast 
enterprise it would not be proper to 
yield the management of it. 

"With the control of the canal in 
our hands we could afford to be liberal 
by making it neutral. Fortifying the 
waterway is of no particular conse- 
quence. To be of any value at all the 
canal must be neutral. If a war 
should break out it would not be likely 
to be fought In the neighborhood of the 

"From the first T have heen Inclined 
to favor the Nicaragua route. The pro- 
posed route Is nearer to this country, 
and by adopting this line we would 
avoid all complications with the old 
canal or with Fi-ance. 

"1 think there is a strong party In 
this country In favor of the Panama 
route, and I hear the owners are hard 
at work trying to have the government 
decide to purchase their interests. 

"It may be necessary to issue bonds 
before the canal In conip'^'^^^- '^"t *^hi8 
may be avoided. a| the appropriations 
will be extended over a number of 
years. I would co^eent to a bond issue 
for this purpose. l>«t much prefer to go 
a little slower and pay ;is we go. It is 
safter to do this. .» 

"No treaty can be ratified by the sen- 
ate which does no^' fibrogate the Clay- 
ton-Bulwer treaty in toto," said Sena- 
tor Cullom. "Our people are disgusted 
with that convention, ^nd would not 
tolerate another trfaty which continues 
that objectionable t-onvention in force. 
This sentiment Is reflected fully in the 
senate, and I believe the next treaty 
dealing with thisvirbieet sent to us 
for action will be Jcce^table to every- 

"I sincerely hope the new treaty will 
be fatisfactory even to those who take 
the extreme view and %vant the treaty 
abrogated by legislation. 

"Lord Paiincefof* and the officials of 
the British foreign office certainly un- 
derstand that the sentiment of this 
country is exceedingly e^trong in favor 
of abrogating the Claytnn-Bulwer. This 
sentiment has been iirought to the at- 
tention of the British offlcials by the 
press of this country, and it would i.ot 
be surprising if they knew of it offi- 

"At anv rate, the British know well 
that the temper of the people Is such as 
to compel -action that will permit the 
construction of the canal Of course, no 
threats have been made, nor will any 
be made. It would be highly improper 
to make threats, especially when nego- 
tiations are- actually in progress or In

A Yarn Spun By an Old Salt. 

"Of course, ■ said a grizzlc-d old salt with 
barnacles on his back and a fringe of 
gray whiskers under his chin, who was 
sitting on the stringpiece at the end of a 
South street wharf looking meditatively 
out across the East River and chewing 

meanwhile on a spear of iiay that he luid 
plucked from a UUe waiting to be hoisted 
aboard a ship as fodder for a couple of 
mules they were taking away on the ves- 
sel, "of course, you know what a mush- 
room anchor is," said he to the New York 
Sun. "No? It is an anchor that has in 
place of the arms and flukes of the ordin- 
ary anchor, a t"asting shai>ed like a siucer, 
or a shallow dish. The shank of the an- 
chor Is set In the center of this casting, in 
the concave side of it; so mat if, in.stead 
of letting thlg anchor hang down you 
were to hold tt bottom up, it would be 
something like a rout^hroom in shape; 
hence the mame, 

'"Mushroom anchors are used for an- 
choring boats that are to stay in one 
place, and for anchoring buoys. They 
make these anchors In a great variety of 
sizes, from a few pounds In weight and a 
few Inches across the mushroom, up to 
anchors 6 or 8 feet across the dish and 
wtighlng three or four tons apiece. They 
might use a little one to anchor a buoy to 
tie a salllHjat to; they would put down 
anchors like the big ones to anchor a 
lightship by. 

"When this .sort of anchor Is put down 
on the bottom the mushroom part of it 
buries, and with that great dish filled with 
sand and mud >au can Imagine how much 
power it would take to pull one of thtm 
up; but I knew of one of 'em once being 
pulled up by a critter that lived on the 
bottom of the sea which was one of my 
experiences when I was al>oard the Toga.1- 
lan Shoals lightship, which was what I 
set out to tell you about. 

"I suppose that the location of the old 
Togallan Shoals lightship is about as ex- 
posed as any there Is along the whole At- 
lantic coast, and in the winter we used 
to have two of those mud saucers over, 
one of them weighing 6;^ pounds and the 
other just an even four tons, mushroomy 
enough, youd have thought to hold a fleet 
of vessels, and certainly enough to hold 
the old lightship In any sort of sea or 
weather; and so they would have been If 
they'd been let alone. 

"But one day In a gale of wind, old Polly 
Ann begun after awhile to hunch to le- 
ward. We had on deck a couple of or- 
dinary big mud hooks, for use in case of 
emergency, and now we put one of them 
overboard and that stopped her. When 
we'd got that done, we found the cable of 
the 4-ton musiiroom hanging straight up 
and down; and when we d got that In we 
found the anchor gone and ihe chfun ca- 
ble parted a foot and a half from the end 
of the anchor shank. 

"Now. that, you know, worried us con- 
siderable, because there was no rocks laid 
down on the charts at that point and we 
knew the cable couldn't have chafed off on 
a rock, and we didn't know what to make 
of it. and they didn't anybody eL^e. So 
when our report of the loss of the big 
mushroom got ashore they sent off by the 
next boat that came to bring us supplies, 
a diver to look the Ikottom over. 

"This diver hadn't been over the side 
muoli moren time enough to let him get 
to the bottom when we felt a twitch on the 
Ufe-llne, and when we'd got him up and 
got his helmet off we saw the only pale 
diver I ever saw-, because, you know, the 
diver Is a man that never gets scared; he 
takes his life in his hands and goes down 
under the water Into all sorts of surround- 
ings without a tremor. But this diver 
had seen something he wanted to get 
away from. 

"And what he'd seen was a lobster aiiout 
21 feet long, upstanding on his long legs 
alx)Ut 8 fe«t. and with claws each about 9 
feet in length, walking along on the bot- 
tom carrving our 4-ton mushroom, with 
the shank held In one of his claws and the 
mushroom up over his shoulder, as If it 
WHS an umbrella. 

"As I said, and as you know, divers see 
wiien thev go l>elow. some strange things, 
but this was the strangest thing that this 
diver had ever seen, and he didn't want 
to see It but once. When the lobster had 
gone by him and had got far enough by so 
that even If he had discovered him, there 
was no danger of his turning 'round ami 
snipping him in two with his free claw, 
the diver yuiiked the li/e-llne and was 
hauled up. ^ ^, 

"Of course, it was easy enough then to 
see what cut the cable. That lobster cut It 
with his big cutting claw, which he could 
easily do. It wasn't so easy to understand 
what he wanted of an umbrella, under 
water so; but I suppose there's a lot of 
things In animal crltors' heads ha w'e 
don't understand. And tht-n, of course. It 
might have been that the big lobster 
wasn't reallv carrying the mushroom that 
wav for any umbrella at all, but only be- 
cause that way was the handiest way for 
blm to carrv It. But seeing him carrying 
it anvway was enough to solve the mys- 
tcrv of the missing mushroom anchor. 

"1 never heard of that lobster being

Some Tramps By Nature, 

Others Through 


Superintendent's Theory 
About Depew's Mis- 
sing Cat Taffy, 

•This is the season when the tramp cat 
starts on his downward career," said 
Superintendent H. Hanklnson of the So- 
ciety for the Prevention of Cruelty to 
Animals, says the New York Sun. "Cer- 
tainly, there are tramp cats just as sure- 
ly as there are tramps of the human spe- 
cies. May day movlngs and the annual 
summer migrations of city families to the 
country throw hundreds of cats out of 
good homes and so make tramps of them. 
But not all tramp cats are victims of en- 
vironment; a great many are victims of 

"Take Semator Depew's missing cat 
Taffv. Now I don't want to hurt any- 
body's feelings, but it is my belief that 
Tafty turned hobo. The chijjge is grave 
and 1 should not feel my.self justified in 
making it except for the fact that I mavo 
studied cat pyschology for thirty years 
and I know a little about it. There are 
two sorts of tramp cats— the natural born 
hobo and the tramp that takes the road 
from hard necessity. Taffy was a splen- 
did Angora, but undoubtediv he belonged 
In the best of the cat families. 

"The genuine tramp is born with a , 
thirst for adventure. Usually his parents 
are tramps. Offspring of prowling cats 
are iusi as sure to bo prowling ^-ats by 
temperament as the children of gypsies 
are certain to be gypsies. 

"Often It has been my fortune to watc'h 
the growth of three or four generations 
of th-.'BC nomad cat families; for Instance, 
our cat catchers gather up all the tramp 
cats in a certain nelg.^borhood. Some 
child claims a litter of kittens belonging 
to these cats. We leave the little cats 
and carry the big ones away to oe done 
to death parniossly in our treacherous cat 
shelter on One Hundred and Twenty- 
third street. Before six months have 
passed the kittens grow up, run away 
from heme and take to tramping. It's 
bred In the bone. Some cats will actually 
turn tail on saucers of real country cream 
and revel In the pickings of garbage 

"But these are all ill-bred cats anyway, 
are they not?" 

"Yes, as 1 sav. In the majority of cases 
the parents and grandparents are tramp 
cats. But not always. A few days ago a 
ladv came here to report the dlsani)ear- 
ance of her handsome Maltese cat that 
went bv the name of Gwendolen Grand- 
court "Tills tabby was Maltese with the 
bluest blood and the most ancient lineage, 
as things ro in the cat tribe. Her mother 
was a dignified cat whose mother before 
her had been a pet In the same family. 
The father cat was of irrepro.Tchable 
chara:ter. But his father— aye, there was 
the rub. His father had been a reckless 
pirate of a cat. Besides that, he was fond 
of eggnogg. Gwendolen had Inherited the 
darc-d--vll ch.iracter of her grandfather. 
This Is an instance of how the ancestry 
of a cat will often explain erratic tenden- 

"Then there are mysterious cases where 
good cats go wrong despite fnultless pedi- 
grees and the most ple;isant surroundings. 
You can always distinguish the born 
tramp cat. of whatever upbringing, from 
the cat that tramps from necessity. The 
born tramp pets his living easily. He Is 
olwavp fat. If not sleek. There is a tri- 
umphant, devil-may-care air about him. 
He knows just where to find the richest 
garbage bo.ves. He has a genlu.« for slip- 
ping through back doors and raldmg laril- 
tirs His sins never find him out until It 
is too late to catch him. » , , * „ 

"A favorite trick too Is to steal lajo a 
house and enjoy a nap curled up on the 
top of the company counterpane. That U 
a reeular tramp cat trick. He Is an adept 
at nutting up a hard-luck story. I can,t 
tell preolselv how he does it. but a tramp 
cat will wheedle a meal from a cook wnere 
an honest cat will go away with an empty 

"How about cats driven Into tramp 


"I was .lust comlncr to tTiem. They are 
a forlorn 'lot. Tlio born tramp cat Is so 
iauntv. so dehonnaire in spite of his dirty 
coat >ind bad character, so evidently in 
harmonv wih his surroundings, vaat nity 
affronts" him. He likes to fly the red flag 
and live In a state of war and siege But 
with the other sort of tramp cats It s a 
different story. ,„^.,„„ f^r 

"Thev don't know how to forage for 
food and thev always get caught In larder 
raids. Between hunsrer and homel?s«ness 
and the tauntlngs of hoys, they lead 
a terrlblv strenuous life. Most of them 
enter tramp-life about this time of year 
through no fault of their own. Kver>' 
well reeulated household. If it owns no cat 
makes haste to adont one in the fall. The 
cat Slavs in the house all winter and 
catcher Vats and mice and drinks milk and 
erows as fat as butter. Summer comes 
and the faimlv migrate. Frequentlv It 
happens that pussy 'has cleared out all of 
the rodents by spring and no one wants 

him about any longer. Many things com- 
bine to run u cat out of house and homa 
at this season. 

"There aro too, of course, the blandish- 
menis of barn tramp cats that hang about 
the backyard and whisper to sedate house 
cats the temptations of anarch.v. Sprmg 
is in the air. Birds flit temptingly in the 
trees. The good cat falls. In about six 
Weeks he Is a confirmed tramp. " 

"Can tramp cats be reformed?"' 

"The barn tramp, no; the tramp of en- 
vironme.ii. scmetimes. I tiiink that the 
average cat that ever really enjoyed a 
home will har.ker after it again. 

"Thjre are people who have a weakness 
for tramp cats Just as there are persons 
whose heurts go out toward human 
hobo;«. In a way, of cour.^e. ih.-y en- 
courage vagrancy among cats. A llttl6 
old lady living in the neighborhood of 
Twenty-sixth street and Madison avenue, 
1 think it was, used to maintain a free 
lunch for tramp cats. Every morning at 
exactly the same hour she fared forth 
wifh a basket of appetizing scraps of 
victuals. Sometimes there were bowls of 
milk. Now, some persons will toll you 
that cats can't talk. Perhaps they cant, 
but the fame of that old lady's charity 
spread among the wiiole tramp cat fra- 
ternilv of Manhattan. Actually, I be- 
lieve that numbers of hobo cats came over 
from Jersey City to eniov her hospitality. 
Cats thronged the neighborhood, and it 
was not in the power of any S. P. C. A. 
to break up that eleemosynary Institution. 
The old lady died and then her proteges 
were scattered. 

"Another tramp cat story that 1 know 
sounds like a bit of occultism. It i.s the 
most curious Incident that I recall in my 
thirty yc«rs of wx)rk for dogs or cats. 
One rainy, cold afternoon when the wind 
blew the water in gusts and turned um- 
brellas Inside out, a woman came here 
carrying a lialf-grown kitten in her arm^. 
She set the little animal down and I rec- 
ognized it at once for a small holio. It 
was wet, miserable, shivering and cov- 
ered with mange. 

" 'I brought this cat to you thinking as 
I walke^l along that I'd ask you to wend 
it to the cat shelter and have it klUeei.' 
said the woman. "On st»cond thought I've 
decided to keep the little thing myself. 
You will think, perhaps, that I am fond of 
cats, but I am no!; I dislike them. 

" 'As T crossed the street a few blocks 
away I heard the mewing of a kitten. I 
walked On and In a moment I heard the 
sound of distress a .second time. I looked 
down and there in the gutter was this 
small creature chilled by the rain. I saw 
that it was wet and covered with mango 
and I did not like to take It up. So I 
hurried on again; but something caught 
mv dress and held me. . 

" 'Again I looked at the kitten, and In 
its eves I seemed to see the eyes of iny 
daughter wtho died a year ago. I tmVt 
explain it but the resemblance is there." 

"To me. of course, the cat oiil.v looked 
sicklv and miserable, with uncommonly 
waterv blinking eyev^;. It doesn't take 
much " stretch of imagination to under- 
stand that the woman's heart was touched 
bv the foilorn cat. and that her sympathy 
caused her to associate it with rhougnta 
of her daughter. On the same urinclolo 
vou know one gives to an aged beggar 
with the thought "Suppoie that were 
mv grandfatner or father!' 

"But the woman as she talked grCfyr 
more firmlv convinced that In some occult 
way the cat had to do with her daughter. 
She went away carrying the cat with her. 
About five vears a lady walked 
into mv office carrying something in a 
silk lined basket. She opened the basket 
and out stepped one of the handsomesst, 
biggest cats I ever saw. It was the mangy 
runt which she had picked up on ihaf 
street so long before. 

"She had traveled extensively in Eu- 
rope and Asia, she told me, and In all her 
journevlngs she carried the cat with "her. 
By that time she was wholly of the belief 
that her daughter's spirit either had en- 
tered the cat of controlled It."

The anonymous letter to the Hebrews 
1 very important piece of the New 
ament literature. It is not known 
.\ . . wTr.te it or at just what time it 
\'. i.s '.vritien, but its purpose was 
clearly that of showing to Jewish read- 
ers the superiority of the Christian 
faith over the old Levltical worship. 
The revelation which God has made 
throtiKh Jesus is superior to every other 
fotm in which He has revealed Him- 
self. It is superior to the revelation 
through angels or even to that made 
\ through Moses. Its ministrations are 
■ superior to rendered l»y J'Kshua or 
even i»y the Aaron ic priesthood with all 
its tdal.orate ritual and equipm<>nt. 
T!i.- iirs' nine and a half chapter* of the 
lett r ,ire devoted t<) thf* elaboration of 
j this composite thesis. The rtst of the 
Lett-'- ^-^ "lainly occupied with exhort- 
atio: d upon the foregoing argu- 

I mem. ; .e les.son under present study 
may easilv 1»e regarded as an argument 
for the ChiLstian faith as the absolute 
relipion on the ground that it has an 
eternal priesthood which is sufierior to 
the old priesthoods in ways which will 
ii.e.v be noted. 

J.sus is the great high joi of man- 
kind. The old pritsthoixl of 
had its day and its ministry. The ser- 
vice it rendered was valuable, hut 
tetrporary. It was but a shadow of 
the true mediatorship which is realized 
in Christ. He is as sympathetic a 
priest as any of the old order, yes. even 
more so. because "He was touched with 
the feeling of our infirmities." True, 
he was not of the order of the house of 
Aaron, but he was of a more ancient 
order, that of Melchizedek. who was a 
royal priest of righteousness, who 
stiught to promote peace in the world, 
and priesthood was personal 
rather th:in inherited, for we are not 
told that he was priest because his 
father was such t>efore him. but the In- 
dication of the story of his life is that 
he t. 111.- t priest solely because of 
divinely KP . II fitness for the work: nor 
was his work merely temp^^rary. for. 
say.s the writer of the epistle, it is writ- 
ten "The Lord sware and will not re- 
pent himself, thou art a priest forever 
after the order of Melchizedek." Like- 
wise the priesthood «if Christ was Riven 
him directly of God as an eternal otflce. 
'lie ever liveth to make intercessi-.n." 
His intercession is not ceremonial and 
formal. Init real and vital. 

Jesus ha.^ execute<l a imoi-m exe 'Ilent 
covenant than had be.-n gi^ en before, 
and this enhances the comparative 
value of his ministry. His was not a 
{■ovenant which said: Oliey the law and 
llvo, but he rather showed man the way 
of th'- Spirit, according to which the 
law of .godl.v living is written on the 
heart, and the motive to keeiiinp the 
covet: lilt i.-< for and devotion to 
the «rMt Father In heaven. 

Jesus is "X minister of holy things, 
ari'l of the true>ernacle. which the 
Lord pitched, not man." The idd 
tabernacle and temple were but pat- 
terns or emblems of the true. and 
sought to instruct man in the worship 
and servi«'e of the God who is a Si>lrit. 
Jesus has obtained a more exc^»llent 
ministry in that he has entered the 
sanctuary of God's eternal and Imme- 
diate presence. And, by how much 
the glorv' of God in heaven is hotter 
than the of his earthly sanctuaries. 
hy so much is the ministry of Chrisit 
Iteter than the choicest ministries 
which G.>d gave to man before th^- com- 
ing of Christ. 

The most decisive of all the points 
that emphasize the excellence of the 
ministry of .Testis is the superiority of 
the offerin.g he made for sin. He needs 
not to go repeatedly Into an earthly 
sanctuary to make offerings for sin. be- 
cause he hath offered himself once for 
all to hf^ar the "Sins of many." (He- 
brews 7:27). The Levitical law said: 
"The life of the flesh Is In the blood, 
and I have given it to you upon the 
altar to make an atonement for your 
souls: for it is the blood that makefh 
an atonement for the .«soul." Rut the 
writer of this Letter .says that. "It is 
impossible that the hlood of bulls and 
goats should take away sins." The sac- 
rifices of the old covenant were hut a 
remembrance of sins. (Hebrews 10:3V 
In Jesuj? we have "Redemption through 
his, the forgiveness of sins, ac- 
cording to the riches of his prace." So 
that, once again. Jf sua Is the best that 
God has given to m.m because he Is the 
real, while that which went before was 
only the figure of that which was com- 
ing to pass in him. The figure was 
important in its time and place. but 
row that the real has come, there Is no 
room left for the .Iraperies of the old 

Why did Christ die? This was a 
question that seemed to the writer very 
important. Hi.« an-^wer. summed up In 
brief compass is this. Jesus died be'^ause 
it is appointed unto all men to die once, 
and without such death the manhood of 
Je»iu» might tie called In question; Jesus 
brought a new tt'-stament to man. nnd 
without the death of the testator, the 
testament or will cannot be In force; .is 
Captain of our salvation He was made 
perfect through suffering— perfect In 
obedience, complete in His .self-sacrifice 
and faithful in His character; Jesus 
was both sacrifice and priest. He there- 
fore had to make an offering of Him- 
self first before He could enter Into the 
eternal sanctuary. 

The minL-itry of Christ must not be 

limited by the fiijures u.sed of it in this 

I letter to the Hebrews. The Letter was 

intended to assist those who were 
familiar with and devoted to the u.sages 
of the old Jewish sanctuary. To them 
the figures imparted- a peculiar signifi- 
cance. But to the student of the Letter 
today It is next to impossible to appre- 
ciate the process of thought as it no 
doubt appealed to the original readers. 
One thing must be insisted on in the 
study of the entire Letter, and that is. 
that the writer intended to impreviS 
upon his readers the spiritual signifi- 
cance of the sufferings of Christ and of 
all His other ministry. 


The prieslh.x)d of Jesus is synony- 
mous with the bringing in "of a better \ 
hope, through which we draw nigh unto 
(iod." Paul tiays in Ephesiuns: "For 
through Him we both (i. e., both Jew 
and Gentile) have access by one Spirit 
unto the Father." This means nothing 
short of the priesthood of every be- 
liever in Jesus Christ. Thefe is no need 
to call upon any other person to make 
one's petitions known to Jesus or to the 
Father. Kach one can «peak for him- 
self in the name of Jesus and rest as- 
] sured his supplication is heard by the 
Father of spirits. Let us draw near to 
Him with gladness, is the exhortation 
which comes from the writer. Let there 
be no heisitancy about speaking to God, 
as if He were hedged about after the 
manner of Sinai of old with fearful 
portents of lightning and cloud. He 
invites all who will to come unto Him 
to find consolation under the "Covert of 
His wing." 

The writer has much to say about the 
finality of all the work of Christ. His 
work is of the eternal sort. His salva- 
tion and redemption are eternal. Hia 
covenant and inheritance are eternal. 
The writer's argument is that the old 
ceremonies were temporary, and 
that their validity has pased 
away to make room for theae 
things of Christ. which are 

eternal. But If these tilings of Christ 
are eternal, then no new scheme of re- 
ligion will ever arise to supplant them. 
To be eternal means that they will be 
forever valid. "Heaven and earth shall away," said Jesus, "but my words 
shall not away." The writer of 
this letter would .say the same thing 
about the priestly ministry of Christ. 

The expression, "Through the eternal 
Spirit." seems to suggest a rational ex- 
planation of the sufferings of Christ. 
According to this expression, the shetl- 
dlng of Hl*» blood is a manifestation of 
mintl or spirit. It is not to be regarded 
as the grossly material thing ,thut it is 
sonjetimes represented to be, even from 
the evangelh-al pulpit. The probaldlity 
is that the spectacular feature of blood 
shedding upon tiie cross has been 
largely overdrawn. The scene was bad 
enough without exaggerating it. The 
effort of Christian teaching ought to be 
to indicate the spiritual significance of 
it rather than to dwell on the mere pic- 
ture of it. Since the offering was made 
through the eternal spirit, it was cer- 
tainly not a late thought in the mind of 
God. n»)r was It done from a new motive 
on His part, but rather from the mi>- 
tive of His eternal love for man, whom 
He Has ever sought to with 
evidences of His affection. 

It wad a free, loving, and holy offer- 
ing for sin, through which, the Scrip- 
tures tesch. we receive cleansing fn)m 
sin. It Is a notable fact that Paul espe- 
cially lays great emphasis on the life 
aci'ording to the Spirit as the way of 
victory ovf*r sin for those who believe 
on Jesus Christ. May we not put thene 
two things together and say. that, 
through the purpose and plan of the 
eternal Spirit Christ offered Himself in 
the spirit of the Levitical law of sacri- 
fices as the sin offering for the world; 
this offering in its Levitical significance 
had a definite meaning for the first 
Christians, who came from among the 
Jews, which it is difficult for us to com- 
prehend. To us the message of Paul 
comes with great force that the only 
way of assurance of our peace with 
God is the acceptance by faith of Je«^us 
as our living Savior, whose death has 
atoned for our sin.s. and then, to live 
according to the Spirit. 


So far as practical life is concerned, 
the purpi^e of the prier'thood of Jesus 
1? to fit each person to "Serve the living 
(Jod." The primary element of fitness 
is personal moral purity; hence the ex- 
pression aliout cleansing the cons< ience 
from works. Romans vi. 22. has 
this ve-ry i^uggestlve passage: "But now 
N^ing made free from sin. and become 
servants to God. ye have your fruit 
unto .sanctiflcation. and the end eternal 
life." Every Iteliever in Christ ought to 
have one gieat eonsumlng purpose to 
serve his Giid with all his might. The 
person who honors God with his loyal 
service will certainly be rewarded with 
a clear corwi Ience, a good character, a 
goml reputaiiim among his fellow pien. 
a growing sense of divine truth, an 
abundant faith and an eternal hope 
that will wax brighter continually. 

The day is coming In which Jesus, 
whose offering for sin has been accept- 
ei1. and who Is the Mediator between 
man and God. will appear again with- 
out reference to sin. t>ecau«e sin will 
then have been done away with; and He 
will *it that time make manifest the 
salvation which He has secured for 
earh i>ne who has sought the re^'eemed 
life which the ?osrM>1 offered him. 




The "New Woman" and the "Bachelor Girl" Have 

Made the Old Maid a Thing 

of the Past. 


Result Was He Was Refused 
Marriage License. 

Dayton. Ohio. .May ."^l.— George Wash- 
ington Parr, aged 60 years of age. who 
made application to wed Mrs. Mattie 
Hall, 20 years his Junior, was confront- 
ed with several knotty problems which 
he could not solve to the satisfaction 
of the license clerk, and he left the pro- 
bate ofllce a badly disappointed man. 
When closely questioned the groom-to- 
be admitted that he had been previous- 
ly married and that he did not really 
know whether he Is legally separated 
Irom his wife. Neither could he state 
whether the prospective bride had been 
granted a divorce decree from her hua- 
band. The application was refused and 
the aged lover was advised to acquaint 
himself with a little family history be- 
fore again venturing on the matri- 
monial sea. 


Ground For Granting a Di- 
vorce In Ohio. 

Toledo, Ohio. May 31.— Charles Rltch 
Johnson, stepson of ex-President A. G. 
Blair, of the Wheeling & Lake Erie 
railroad, was granted a divorce from 
his pretty 18-year-old wife on the 
ground that sho asserted she was tired 
of married life and hated children. She 
is in New York with her mother. 

There fa a notion at large that the 
genus known as "old maids" is becoming 
extinct, writes Gertrude B. Lane in the 
Brown Book. 

The fact of the matter is that while 
the pltrase may be on its way to obsoles- 
cence, the class itself as defined by the 
dictionary is nourishing as the green bay 
tree, though it would be idle to deny 
that the original article has become 
somewhat differentiated. "Old maids," 
says the Century, are "women who re- 
main unmarried beyond the usual or 
average age for marriage." and if we 
confine ourselves to that definition, faces 
and figures will prove beyond question 
that the old maid is, numerically speak- 
ing, coming to the front. 

In ancient histor>' the unmarried sis- 
terhood is consjiicuous chiefiy for its ab- 
sence. From musty old volumes we learn 
that before the Christian era few women 
were "exposed to the mortifications of a 
single life." The Babylonians devised a 
hapjiy expedient to p
